Passo del Cardinale – Primitivo DOC – Paolo Leo

Passo del Cardinale – Primitivo Manduria DOC – red wine – Paolo Leo

Primitivo is an ancient vine grown in Puglia whose grapes ripen very early compared to other varieties. A very interesting peculiarity of Primitivo is that after only 20 days from the harvest, this vine is able to give a decent second production. Traditionally the fruits of this “second harvest” are used to give freshness to this powerful wine by improving the acidity of the musts obtained from the first harvest.

TASTING NOTES: Ruby red color with elegant garnet reflections. On the nose it gives an intense bouquet of black berried fruits, mainly black currant that fades into notes of licorice and coffee. The taste is decisive, with velvety and enveloping tannins. The freshness is structural and offers a persistent finish of berry jam and spices

FOOD PAIRINGS: The great body of the Primitivo di Manduria di Passo del Cardinale is able to enhance fine meats with a rigorous structure. Slices of beef and grilled steaks are the backdrop for a panoramic photograph. A touch of Puglia with orecchiette with chops sauce can be a gastronomic journey with which you can surprise your guests.
