Primitivo di Manduria is a black DOC grape which production is allowed only in Puglia, in the municipalities of Brindisi and Taranto (Salento peninsula).
The origins of this vine are uncertain, although it is said that the Greeks brought it to Puglia over two thousand years ago. Full-bodied and harmonious, Primitivo di Manduria represents one of Puglia’s finest wine productions. This wine is therefore suitable for many dishes and is widely appreciated for its versatility and for its organoleptic characteristics.
