Matane Primitivo Di Manduria DOC 2019 Red Wine – Italy
100% Primitivo. Matured 4 months in French oak barriques. Ruby red color with rich violet reflections, opulent bouquet, reminiscent of ripe cherries and plums, integrated by pleasing nuances of chocolate and vanilla. Remarkable structure, softened by the roundness and silkiness characteristic of Primitivo’s long, velvet finish.
90 points – James Suckling
Salento is located in the southernmost portion of Apulia and is Italy’s easternmost area. It is a land of extreme and dramatic beauty with lush, dark red soil bathed in Mediterranean sunlight. Historic native varieties and outstanding vineyards are constantly windswept by the salty breezes of the Adriatic and the Ionian seas. The peninsula’s amazing palette of colors and sensations gives Salentino wines a layered depth, unique to the region.
The Matané mission consists of exploring, enhancing and exporting the richness and excellence of Salento viticulture using 100% estate-grown fruit; Matané packaging correspondingly pays homage to Salento and depicts one of its symbols, a traditional local dance called the Pizzica. In ancient times, the Pizzica was a ritual dance connected to Dionysus, the Greek god of wine: a tradition from neighboring Greece and its settlers in Puglia.
