imprint Primitivo by A Mano reflects the personality of the winemaker Mark Shannon. A strong, grape-varietal red wine that also has a soft, velvety side and conjures up a smile on the lips with every sip.
In the glass, this wine shines in a dark ruby red. The bouquet reveals wonderful aromas of red fruits - from ripe strawberries to juicy red currants to sweet cherries. The palate is pampered by the expressive fullness of fruit and a refreshing acidity. The velvety and smooth texture harmonizes perfectly with the soft, sweet tannin structure. The finale comes with a magnificent length and chocolate nuances.
Vinification of the A Mano Imprint Primitivo
The imprint Primitivo by A Mano is a heart project by Mark Shannon, who already recognized the potential of Apulian vines for Appassimento wines in the style of Ripasso and Amarone in 2012. This wine is also made exclusively from dried primitive grapes. Unlike Amarone & Co., it does not have to be stored for long, but comes ready to drink from the winery. Although strong in alcohol, it inspires like all A Mano wines with remarkable freshness and beautiful length.

A strong, affordable Primitivo
The 2018 vintage has character and intensity, not too subtle but quite pleasing overall. Make sure to aerate for a few hours before enjoying it with a strong blue cheese or a hearty meat dish.Romain | 24 Dec 2020
