Producer Information

Mark Shannon and his partner Elvezia Sbalchiero have revolutionised the style and calibre of Primitivo, turning it into one of Puglia’s most talked about grape varieties. They achieved this at A Mano, in Salento, by paying fair, high prices for the best possible grapes (sourced from 70 to 100-year-old vines) and focusing exclusively on quality, while crafting a modern style. As the old saying goes, where you lead others will follow.

The continued success of A Mano is at least partly attributable to the knowledge that Mark and Elvezia have gleaned from over 18 vintages in Puglia. Not only do they have access to Salento’s best grapes, but their growers have also realised that if they want the higher price paid by A Mano, they need to provide quality to match.

Grapes

Primitivo,

Production

The grapes for this wine are grown in vineyards located in the Lizzano area. Suitable vineyards need to be sought out because Rosato needs both colour and full flavour at lower ripeness, which is not typical of Puglia. The sandy vineyards are high up on the hillside, dry farmed and are over 30 years old.

Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were crushed and immediately pressed. Contact time with the skins was measured in seconds rather than hours. The grapes were processed as fast as possible in order to preserve the fresh fruit flavours and extract just the right amount of colour. The juice then underwent a slow fermentation at low temperatures of approximately 7ºC to retain the delicate perfumes of the grapes.

Tasting Notes

This wine is a vibrant pink colour, with youthful aromas of fresh cherries, tree-ripened peaches and cassis. The palate is structured and surprisingly full-bodied, balanced perfectly by zippy acidity and a fresh fruit character.
