San Marzano Primitivo di Manduria riserva Anniversario 62

San Marzano 62 Anniversario Primitivo di Manduria Riserva 2014

From San Marzano, the 2014 62 Anniversario Primitivo di Manduria Riserva is made from 100% head-trained Primitivo grapes grown in highly weathered, calcareous soils rich in iron oxides. Opaque quinacridone violet in the glass, the nose explodes with blackberries, plums, black cherry, anise, candied violets, and sweet tobacco. It's supple and smooth on entry, with it's weight counterbalanced against a bevy of chewy, ripe tannins, moderate acidity and an earthy mineral vein that emerges at the close.
