La Bollina Actarus Primitivo di Manduria 2018
- Rich, full-bodied
We can’t get enough of the primitivo that Bollina produces in Italy. This one has a crazy 98-point score from Luca Maroni and hails from Manduria, a little region in the heel of the boot that is known for the variety. The fruit is hand harvested and done a bit late in order to increase concentration, power and richness. There’s blackberry, cherry and plum with a backbone of tobacco, mocha and cocoa. This isn’t wine for the faint of heart, but rather for those that want something dense and dark in the glass.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

In the heart of Gavi lies this 120ha property. Where once resided the Marchioness Figari of Genova, the villa onsite is now a luxury hotel where you can live out your dreams of eating and drinking like Italian nobility. Planted over 25ha (the rest dedicated to golf courses and chestnut woods) are traditional grape varieties like cortese, chardonnay, barbera, dolcetto and nebbiolo. Founded in 2009, La Bollina honours the historical and rural traditions of the area, although their winemaking techniques have been completely overhauled. They now use only the best modern winemaking techniques to make the best Piedmontese wines possible.
