San Marzano Primitivo Di Manduria Talo
San Marzano Primitivo di Manduria Talo
Grape variety: 100% Primitivo
From: Apulia, Italy
One of our favourite bottles here at Simply Vegan Wines, the Primitivo di Manduria Talo is everything a southern Italian red wine should be. Unashamedly fruit-driven, yet far from jammy, bold and tannic, yet not at all overwhelming, it's a wine with a level of complexity and appeal far greater than its price tag. This is a special occasion wine to buy by the case. Enjoy it with rich tomato based dishes and grilled and roasted vegetables.
The grapes were fermented in stainless steel to preserve the vibrant fruit flavours, and then matured in a combination of French and American oak for 6 months, lending a welcome suppleness to the mouthfeel. No animal-based fining agents or winery aids were used during the vinification.
San Marzano is an award-winning cooperative of over 1000 vinegrowers in southern Italy, melding time-honoured techniques with innovative and vegan friendly winemaking. They were granted the prestigious title of 'European Producer of the Year' by the Sommelier Wine Awards, 2017.
