Borgo dei Trulli Primitivo di Manduria 2015

The wine displays a deep violet colour, with pleasant earthy aromas of blackcurrants, vanilla and chocolate. The palate is velvety, elegant and complex. The finish is extremely well-balanced and persistent.

On the ‘heel of Italy’s boot’, in the Salento region of Puglia, lies Masseria Borgo dei Trulli, an Orion Wines estate. Home to dark, thick-skinned black grape varieties, the focus here is primarily on indigenous varieties and interesting production methods, like the red grape Negroamaro – known in the local dialect as ‘niuri maru’, meaning black and bitter – and the appasimento style Primitivo, an air drying process that concentrates the flavours of this intensely fruity variety.
