Villa Santera 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 balanced. Enjoy with grilled meats, baked pasta or pasta with hearty sauces, and ripe cheeses.
