2016 Varvaglione Collezione Privata Primitivo di Manduria DOP



• 6 bottle of 2016 Varvaglione Collezione Privata Primitivo di Manduria DOP

Italian Wine Society makes sure that we often recommend great full body red wines as an alternative to Shiraz or Malbec. Primitivo is definitely one of those grape varieties that are capable of distinguishing itself from different styles. This “Collezione Privata” by Valrvaglione certainly adds a strong complexity element to any cellar. Also, its packaging represents the tradition of this well established winemaker family. The Collezione Privata originates from a careful hand-selection of each single cluster on old free standing vines, cultivated following the old family tradition.

Primitivo di Manduria now is extremely well known for its powerful fruity profile and the rich structure on the palate. I do personally love this wine because there is an addition of acidity and complexity that helps this wine to be harmonious without being boring. It is a wine that definitely lends itself to a “meditation moment” (in the wine world meditation refers to a moment we enjoy a glass of wine on its own, without food).

It perfectly matches with red meat, game and aged cheese. But it’s a great meditation wine too.
