"Triusco" Primitivo di Manduria DOC 2018 - Rivera

Primitivo di Manduria is a black grape variety grown in the central-southern part of Apulia, which owes its name to its early ripening. It produces rich, alcoholic wines with an intense colour and characteristic bouquet of black fruit. A fine example is this Triusco, Rivera's interpretation of the noble Apulian grape variety. A wine that demonstrates a perfect balance between the extreme intensity of its aromas and the concentration of matter on the palate, with its dense tannic structure and pleasant acidity. With its impenetrable violet colour, this intense red wine immediately reveals a bouquet of black berry jam and cocoa. In the mouth it is warm and soft, with notes of plum, currant jam and chocolate. The finish, long and persistent, makes it a wine suitable for important pairings. Excellent with game, it is the wine that can be put on the table when lunch or dinner is the occasion to spend several hours in company.

There was a time when Puglia was considered Italy's reservoir of mediocre wines. Mostly powerful and alcoholic reds, often used to give a helping hand to the delicate wines of northern Italy, which were more drained in terms of colour and alcohol. Once upon a time, indeed. Because today Puglia can boast of an important level of quality in its wines, capable of competing on equal terms on the main markets throughout the world. One of the protagonists of this Apulian 'Renaissance' is undoubtedly the Rivera winery. Founded at the end of the 1940s, for many experts and enthusiasts it is the very symbol of this renaissance. As a family business, it has always been committed to promoting its territory. Thanks to a successful "quality project" that starts with the careful management of the 75 hectares of vineyards, according to sustainable farming protocols. Modern, espalier-trained vineyards are cultivated with the main native varieties of the area, such as Bombino Bianco, Bombino Nero, Nero di Troia, Fiano, Aglianico and Moscato Reale. But also international, such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon.
