Vintages Wine Panel: Winemakers in Puglia are specialists in crafting Primitivo (a.k.a. Zinfandel) and Leone de Castris is among the most famous producers in the region. This beautifully balanced Primitivo features aromas of plum and raspberry and is made in a much more structured style than the fruity versions coming out of California, although the familiar profile is certainly there. It will reward short-term cellaring, or savour tonight. My note: A mocha nose followed by emerging blackberry and blueberry aromas. Full-bodied and vibrant with a lust of life.

Primitivo Di Manduria food pairings: grilled steaks and roasted red peppers.
