Ionis Ater Primitivo di Manduria


A vivid red ruby colored wine with an intricate and well decided scent. Its bouquet presents a sweet vanilla flavor combined with the peculiar scent of fruit jam, plum and morello. It results in a potent but very balanced red wine, in spite of its high alcoholic strength. Very good persistence.

Food Pairing   Primitivo is a medium bodied red that is plush, low in tannin, and almost syrupy. Due to the lack of tannin, it pairs well with anything tomato based such as spaghetti Bolognese, veal parmigiana, chicken cacciatore, and pizza (especially with crumbled sausage).
Best served at a temperature of   17˚C > 19˚C
14.5% ABV
