Produttori Vini Manduria, Primitivo di Manduria Riserva DOC (Puglia, Italy) “Elegia” 2019

($22):  A massive bottle plus a 15 percent stated-alcohol accurately predicts the style of the wine before you pull the cork.  Mild and suave tannins lend needed support to the fruity richness.  The level of alcohol and the ripe dark fruit quality explains a hint of sweetness in the finish.  It is a well-made round and robust winter wine to be sure.
