A. Mano Puglia Primitivo 2001
Called A•Mano ("hand-made"), this fruit-packed, food-friendly red expresses the region's quality potential, and the reasons for Mark's Apulian connection.
What you get can only be characterful duo of Primitivo Puglia IGT reds with fruit you can chew on, supple body, fresh acidity: "just the kind of wine the consumer wants to drink, and drink again."
Called AMano ("hand-made"), and entirely hand-crafted from indigenous Primitivo grapes (the original source of Zinfandel, by the way...), this fruit-packed, food-friendly red expresses the region's quality potential, and the reasons for Mark's Apulian connection. These are best told by Mark himself: "Apulia (or Puglia, as it is known in Italian) is so easy to fall in love with: old, head-trained vineyards, a history of grape-growing in harmony with nature. Everything necessary for top-quality wines. I was compelled to stay. I have not seen another region of the world where the quality potential is so high.
After so many years of technical wine-making, I had almost forgotten that the right way to make wine is with love. In fact, Puglia reminded me this is the way to do everything."
