Wine review: Lirica Primitivo di Manduria 2007, Italy Add to ...

  • Rating 89
  • Year 2007
  • Region Puglia
  • Varietal Primitivo
  • Price $18.95

The blessed Mediterranean warmth of southern Italy is palpable in this full-bodied red, with its ripe and even slightly overripe flavours, attractively balanced by woody spice and acidity. It’s like cherry jam and raisins dusted with pepper, served on a charred cedar plank.
