Tre Bicchieri 2024, The 7 best Primitivo di Manduria wines awarded by Gambero Rosso
It might seem contradictory to talk about growth after this extremely challenging 2023, from which very few producers will be able to achieve the hoped-for results or even results similar to those of previous years. However, it seems inevitable to assert: Puglia continues to grow, both in terms of quality and in awareness of this growth, and the means to achieve it. Just consider how many denomination of origin wines have been awarded the Tre Bicchieri (19) compared to those awarded just five years ago (10) to understand how the identity and typical characteristics of the region are now increasingly important for the people of Puglia, whereas only a few years ago, regional production was fundamentally linked to the grape variety rather than the territory.
This year also the Tre Bicchieri are 26 (Apulian labels awarded ) and they seem to represent, with complete satisfaction, the high quality scene within the region. Primitivo is undoubtedly the main grape variety. Here, we focus on the award-winning labels of Primitivo di Manduria from the Gambero Rosso Vini d'Italia 2024 guide.
Furthermore, the wine awarded as the best value-for-money red in Italy in the Berebene 2024 guide by Gambero Rosso is also a Primitivo di Manduria (best value-for-money award).
