The Primitivo di Manduria Antico Sigillo 2014 was ranked by Wine Spectator at the 63rd position of the Top 100 list (worldwide)! A beautiful recognition for the fine work done to produce this wine.

Tasting notes by Geoffrey Bentrari, Chef Sommelier at Hotel President Wilson Geneva

This wine, with a garnet red colour and shades of violet, is seductive.

The aromas are intense and expressive: a pleasant woodiness, aromas of figs, red peppers, Espelette chilli, jammy black fruits, peppermint and even a slightly dominant brown tobacco, liquorice and sandalwood. We find the finest of jammy black fruit such as blackcurrant, elderberry and red cherry.

The wine comes in a "Vintage" style. The palate is fresh with smooth tannins coated with a touch of sweetness: stewed fruits, cocoa liqueur and dried porcini mushrooms. The structure is powerful and promising. Very drinkable which should improve with age.

This wine can be served at 16 ° C with decanting beforehand.

Wine-food pairing:

- Beef fillet Kagoshima, asparagus Roques-Hautes, cromesquis of Béarnaise, tarragon sorbet
- Carpaccio of semi-cooked veal, ravigote sauce
