Donna Caterina Primitivo
Primitivo di Manduria DOC
Very deep red in colour turning almost purplish. The nose reveals a rich perfume of plum, black cherry and also spices as ginger and vanilla. On the palate it is full bodied and velvety and well bal-anced. Enjoy with grilled meats, baked pasta or pasta with hearty sauces, and ripe cheeses.
