Conviviale Primitivo 2016

Tasting Note

Rich, characterful, southern red from the Manduria zone - the heartland of Primitivo. A warm, richly flavoured red with aromas of plums, dried fruits and sweet spices. On the palate it is generous with impressive concentration of ripe plum and black cherry fruit and hints of dried figs - all balanced by a silky smooth mouthfeel and fresh acidity.

Producer Details

Established in 2003, Adria Vini is a winemaking venture jointly owned by Boutinot and Araldica Castelvero, the leading co-operative in the Monferrato hills of Piemonte. Their aim is to produce authentic, well-priced still and sparkling wines from local grape varieties. All aspects of production, from grape selection through to vinification, maturation, blending and bottling are meticulously overseen by Araldica's winemaking team of Claudio Manera and Lella Burdese - assisted by Boutinot's Tony Brown MW. They source from a range of private growers and cooperatives, with whom they have long term relationships, principally in Veneto, Friuli, Lombardy, Sicily, Puglia, Abruzzo and Sardinia.

In The Winery

Produced from the local Primitivo variety cultivated in the Salento peninsula of the Puglia region, southern Italy. Grapes were sourced from selected vineyards between 20 and 60 years old and hand harvested in early September. Fermentation took place at 28 to 30C with daily pumping over and 10 days contact with the skins. After malolactic fermentation the wine was bottled without oak ageing.

Food Recommendations

The perfect partner to grilled meats, pasta dishes with meat or spicy sauces and hearty stews.
