Tenuta Giustini Acinore Primitivo DOC Manduria 2021 75cl


Tasting Note

A very old vine training system called 'alberello' (meaning 'little tree', so basically bush vine) and a special vineyard where the plants are about 50 years old. This is where Acinorè comes from, Tenuta Giustini's best expression of Primitivo. It is a big, spicy style of Primitivo, really dark and intense with a smooth tannic finish.


This wine is in the UK because I randomly got an email, knew a pal was looking to import some wine into the UK, and introduced the pair. Now the wine is in the UK and we are the first retailers to have it in Scotland. Giuseppe Papadopoli saw that wines from this part of the world were starting to be recognised for their quality in the early 1990s and in 2005, they launched their first wine. They operate a minimal intervention policy, and aim to show the variety in its purest form, capitalising on Puglia's indigenous grapes.
