Varvaglione is one of the oldest and most awarded family run wineries in Puglia. We bring into the limelight 3 of the best wines they produce with this 3-pack.
The highly respected Varvaglione Vigne e Vini estate from Puglia is one of the oldest and most awarded family run Southern Italian wineries. We bring into the limelight 3 of the best wines Varvaglione Puglia produces. With the consistent quality produced by Varvaglione right across their range and their consistent awards, it was a challenging task to narrow it down to 3 select wines, but we did, with the Primitivo and the Negroamaro and of course we couldn't leave out their flagship, the mighty Papale Primitivo di Manduria, a great wine with 4 x Gold Medals and acknowledged by Luca Maroni as one of his favourite Reds from his 2020 edition of his Italian wine guide with one of his most inspired reviews I've ever seen.
The Varvagliome Puglia Reds 3-Pack contains one bottle each of the following wines:
Varvaglione Dodici e Mezzo Primitivo del Salento 2020
''A great value Primitivo del Salento from the Puglia wine region produced by the Varvaglione family. Look for ripe plum, cherry compote, dark chocolate and vanilla flavours on the palate in the smooth red.'' Natalie Maclean
Varvaglione Vigne e Vini Linea Oro 'Papale' Primitivo Di Manduria 2017
"The features of its most sumptuous consistency are first and foremost in the dense depth of its tint, in the opaque strength of its intense colour. Therefore, in the thickness and wealth of the perfume: successive levels of the overlapping flesh of berries, fused with strands of minty spice that hint at medicinal liniments, yet with deep notes of forest fruit. If the sense of smell is resinous, the touch is real cream. Cassis jam, made plump and pulpy from the tannin. And if the dosage of spices and the oenological sharpness of transformation give the complexity the balanced radiance of the whole, the last sign of its thick density is the unwillingness of its most soothing and minty fruit echoes to vanish. Among the best Italian reds of the year." 97 Points, Luca Maroni, Annuario Del Migliori Vini Italiani Awards 2020
Varvaglione Dodici e Mezzo Negroamaro del Salento 2020
Ruby red with shades of purple; the nose has fascinating scents of wild berries. The palate is marked by plums, vanilla, ripe fruits, with a long lingering finish and a velvety texture.
