A MANO BIANCO 2015

Fiano Minutolo 60%
Falanghina 30%
Greco 10%
 
2015 was a very nice harvest in Puglia. We love Fiano Minutolo with its pure ripe peach aromas. Falanghina is a beautiful match adding citrusblossoms, muscles and minerality, and Greco is awonderful grape that brings structure to the blend.

A Mano Bianco combines crisp and cleanflavors with concentration and length.The aromas of ripe pears, orange blossoms, whitepeaches and a whiff of jasmine are seductiveand rewarding. I love the balance between depthand energy.Ripe grapes were pressed and fermented clean andcold for a very long time (10 weeks). We also driedsome of the Fiano until the end of October andblended this super juice into the wine at the veryend of fermentation.

This is the most unusual white wine that youwill try from Puglia, maybe even all of Italy. It is a fresh, delightful aperitivo. A perfect match forseafood, chicken and salads, we adore it in spring with asparagus and in the summer with a freshpasta like spinach ravioli. Yes, it is delicious fordrinking on its own, but when you have aslightly richer dish it really shines.

A MANO NEGROAMARO 2015

Negroamaro 100%
 
The last vintage of A Mano Negroamaro sold out very quickly and our clients asked for more. In 2015 we wanted to make a really expressive and concentrated Negroamaro. With the help of a very dedicated grape grower we made a real powerhouse! Delightful in its youth with all the exuberant fruit flavors, A.Mano Negroamaro will also age for a very long time and develop the complexities of mature Burgundy.

The intense aromas of crushed berries –juicy and sweet, then black cherries and spices jump out. Look again and you find a floral note, like the heart of an apricot colored rose. Floral notes are common in white wines, but rare in reds; A Mano Negroamaro is one of the few reds that have it, and it is seductive.

Keep a few bottles in the fridge for those hot summer days and enjoy a chilled glass while firing up the coals. This wine will shine with spicy sausages, fresh pasta with homemade meatballs, or barbequed chicken.

PRIMA MANO PRIMITIVO 2012

PUGLIA – INDICAZIONE GEOGRAFICA TIPICA
100% Primitivo

Prima Mano means “finest quality” in Italian. It shows the elegance and complexity that makes our wines different from the other Primitivos in Puglia.

Prima Mano is made only in extraordinary years and 2012 was certainly an excellent year for our red grapes. The long warm, but not too hot, summer extended into the most beautiful months of September and October. Prima Mano talks to you of the very old vines grown on sandy soils close to the Ionian Sea. The red sand reflects sunlight onto the fruit for early ripening. This is the first vineyard harvested in September, the yields are extremely low and tells us what to expect for the rest of the harvest.

Prima Mano Primitivo is Thermostyled. The grapes are crushed and put into a jacketed stainless steel fermenter. Since the grapes have evolved very reliable natural yeast, fermentation starts within hours. The must is allowed to ferment without temperature control for the first 48 hours with pump-over every two hours around the clock. Temperature will reach 30°C which gives the intense color, and because alcohol is very low at the beginning of fermentation the tannins extracted are very soft and fine. Once the color and tannin structure is correct we turn the temperature down to 15°C and allow the wine to finish fermenting for 2 weeks.

Prima Mano Primitivo is full of juicy blackberry, cherry and plum fruit, with dark mineral and peppery spice notes rounding things out. It is impressively concentrated without being heavy, and lush without being sweet. There is a freshness and an acidity that invite another sip, and then another. It is deep purple in color, and has black cherries, violet, and mocha on the nose, along with a ripe and jammy palate. Note the persistent aftertaste with a balance and structure for aging a decade. And for the first time since Prima Mano was born, for 2012 harvest we did not use any oak. Purer than this it will not get!

About Puglia
Puglia is not only Old World, it is Old Italy. A place where there is always time for a visit, where families eat together every day, where you know your neighbors because you grew up with them. It is also the home of simple great cooking. Everything is fresh, in-season, harvested ripe and prepared simply to accentuate the intrinsic taste. We adore Puglia and make A•Mano the same way a great Puglian cook prepares a meal – with Love!

We work with the best vineyards and do everything possible to maintain the purity of their flavors. Tradition is vital in Puglia, and our winemaking is traditional, natural and respectful. We use the native yeast that grows on the grapes. Our fermentations are kept cool to preserve the flavors of the vineyards. Everything possible is done to preserve the flavors, not manufacture them.

History
Elvezia is from Friuli in the far northeast of Italy, and Mark is Californian. We made Puglia our home because something is still possible here that is fast disappearing in the rest of the wine world – hand made (A•Mano) great wines that are affordable.

Puglia
Here times runs slow, family and friends still get together for a long lunch even in the middle of the week; quality of life is important.

You shop for the most wonderful, fresh, ripe seasonal fruit and vegetables and can find extraordinary homemade bread baked by grandma in a wood oven.

Doesn’t it sound wonderful? That’s why we adore it, made it our home, chose this region to make A•Mano.
