A Mano Negroamaro 2015 

Mark Shannon and Elvezia Sbalchiero, the duo behind A Mano, have worked in the wine business for most of their lives.  Elvezia is a northern Italian wine marketing expert and Mark is a Californian winemaker. They fell in love with Puglia and, when they decided to start their own label, made it their home. By producing wines of quality, Mark and Elvezia have succeeded in making Primitivo one of Italy’s most talked about grape varieties. They pay high prices for the best grapes from 70-100 year old vines and focus solely on quality and a modern style. After over a decade of vintages, they are now getting access to some of Salento’s best grapes.

Vineyards

The Negroamaro grapes for this wine are grown in an old, single 11 hectare vineyard, in the heart of Salice Salentino. An old vineyard, it is dry farmed and trained on trellises to prevent the sensitive grapes suffering from sunburn.

Vintage Information

2015 was a great harvest in Puglia and the grapes reached very good ripeness and richness. Summer was sunny, dry and warm with many days in the mid to upper 30°Cs. Grape set was light, and beautiful, hot weather resulted in the earliest harvest on record. All vineyards gave clean and ripe fruit.

Vinification

On arrival at the cellars, the grapes were pressed, destemmed and cooled to 18°C and the must was allowed to ferment at its own pace. After racking in mid-November, the wine remained in an underground cement tank where the temperature did not exceed 10°C until bottling under stelvin closure.

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby in the glass. The nose opens with crushed berries, black cherries and spices followed by a light floral note. Full and rich, yet sleek and elegant, with lingering spice on the palate
