Primitivo di Manduria “Cru Zinfandel”
Cru Zinfandel is produced from the most famous Primitivo clones and precisely it is the vine that is grown in California under the name of Zinfandel. This wine has a ruby red color, with violet reflections and is expressed on the nose with hints of ripe fruit, almost jam, with clear hints of red and black fruits, followed by elegant spicy notes like black pepper. In the mouth it gives a rich and intense taste, with firm tannins and a solid body. Remarkable is the persistent olfactory taste due to the tannin released by the barrique.
Azienda Agricola Felline is finally receiving the attention and accolades it deserves. Back-to-back Tre Bicchieri wins from Gambero Rosso for different Cru wines (Giravolta Primitivo di Manduria and Sinfarosa Zinfandel), coupled with the discovery and promotion of ancient native varietals, Felline is not just a Puglian producer, but a Puglian protagonist.
