Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A beautiful example of a Primitivo! There are rich notes of dried fruit, leather and earth. On the palate the dark berries, brown sugar, roasted smoky marshmallows, and currants with notable heat. Great layers of complexity and true elegance, well done!
From producer, Luigi Antonio, this Italian Primitivo from Puglia won the 2012 International Wine & Spirit Competition. Poderi Angelini Di Manduria (2012) is made from the Primitivo di Manduria grape grown in Salento. The wine is dark and spicy with a meaty, smoky nose. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
