Primitivo di Manduria Riserva 'Giunonico' Paolo Leo 2017

The Primitivo di Manduria Riserva "Giunonico" by Paolo Leo is an enveloping and full-bodied red Apulian wine, with a velvety, round mouthfeel and mature and persistent tannins. It refines for 20 months in large oak barrels and gives itself in a typical aromatic bouquet, warm and with tones of blackberries, plums and ripe cherries, with details of sweet toasted spices and blond tobacco.
