Review

Donato Angiuli's winery in Adelfia, a symbol of goodwill tied to the traditions of the territory and the constant pursuit of excellence, has been around for three generations and focuses on experimenting with Primitivo, enhancing its potential and peculiar differences. One of the most active and dynamic wineries in the territory, Angiuli works on only four hectares of land, a clear sign of an approach to quality winemaking.

Angiuli's Primitivo is an extraordinary product from the Gioia del Colle area: it combines the subtle finesse which is typical of the local Primitivo, in the hilly inland area, with the soft intensity which is characteristic of this late harvesting variety, as in this case, in the middle of September.

The winery's magnificent saplings, which are 60 years old in this area and which grow on predominantly clay soil, give wines excellent aromatic complexity and elegance combined with a firm structure. The Maccone Primitivo, for example, has become a veritable pearl for the winery, winning hearts over with its ruby coloured, purple shaded grape.

What stands out in the aromas, which are expansive and elegant, are plums, ripe prunes and sour black cherries, on a bed of dried violet floral notes and deeper notes of black pepper with slight mineral roasting. Warm and fulfilling, the taste is distinguished by the sweetness of the tannins and its caressing softness which, while not detached from a pleasant freshness, makes this wine enjoyable and complete.

Wonderfull, fruity Primitivo

Smooth, fruity with an intense and lasting end. Ripe cherries, medium tannins, nice acidity. Black cherries in the nose, Cherries, spices, vanilla and spices in the tongue.

Sehr guter Primitivo.

Sehr geschmeidig auf dem Gaumen mit angenehmer Restsüße, harmonisch im Abgang, aber sehr viel Alkohol. Auf jeden Fall ein sehr empfehlenswerter Primitivo!

Very good

I have a drawing to Primitivo wine and this was as good as most others, lovely nose of summer and black berries, slightly heavy but very good.

Superior wine - smell is beyond expectations. Tastes blackberries, vanilla.

This is a really good serious Primitivo. So inviting ... you can't stop tasting the wine. Smells berries and wood. Tastes, and you can't resist trying the wine after you smelled it, black berries, a little bit vanilla, oak. .... past 2 weeks i tried it again. It's bloody astonishing.
