Review

Coming under the Primitivo di Manduria D.O, the Sessantani is made from the grapes of vines almost 100 years old, the oldest of the Feudi di San Marzano.

A deep ruby-red colour, on the nose it releases primary aromas of fruit, ripe plums and blackberries, cherry jam; afterwards, spicy and fragrant notes of liquorice, sandalwood, cardamom, pepper, tobacco, incense and cocoa, It is rich, intense and explosive on the palate, but exquisitely balanced and elegant. A powerful wine with considerable body, but also smooth and caressing.

It enhances meat dishes such as lamb chops, veal stew, and roast leg of pork.

Superbo

Un vino superbo ... ad un prezzo strepitoso... va bene sull’ carne e con dei primi corposi ...

One of life's extremely pleasant surprises.

In our house we regularly drink Primitivo. It goes so well with dishes containing tomato. We do not pay the price of this wine but decided to try it. What an excellent decision. Not that I would choose this truly outstanding wine to accompany tomato dishes. Red meat or game come to mind (we first tried it with wild boar pâté). But it is now a house favourite 'special' wine.

Delicious wine

I ordered this wine at an Italian Restaurant in Mallorca and loved it. I could only find the exact wines through a Google search from Italvinus in Italy, so I ordered six bottles online. I shall be buying more!

this is amazing

This primitivo wine is so smooth that it is like drinking nectar it slides down your throat leaving a sensuous taste that lingers beautifully on your tongue it is one of the best I have tasted and my friends adore it..Trust me buy some and you will agree that it is the best.

A really good example of the type

First tried this in a restaurant in Puglia just a few miles form the winery! It tasted wonderful there and has, thankfully, transported well to the UK climate! Loads of fruit as you'd expect; good to drink now but I suspect will improve further with a little more patience!
