Important Tuscan Family Winery: 2019 Barbanera Ngudra Primitivo del Salento

Get ready! Today we have an allocation of Barberna’s flagship wine, Ngudra. This wine is from old vines and ONLY from Barbernera’s top grapes. It’s a 99-point wine with a price that will make your jaws drop. A red that’s consistently one of Italy’s best red wines.

From one of Italy’s leading wineries, this 2019 Primitivo hails from Salento, the rich and exotic region known as the land "of the two seas.” Located between the Ionian Sea and the Adriatic Sea, an ocean breeze influence assists in producing stunning, rich, unique wines. Barbanera crafts the top-quality Ngudrà with only the best Primitivo grapes, hand-harvested from its sustainable vineyards. 

Among the winery’s many accolades includes the 2020 “Best Italian Wine Producer” award (for the 4th year in a row) in the quantity-quality category by Luca Maroni. The winery, operated by fifth-generation sisters, Sophia and Agnes, has vineyards in some of the best appellations in Tuscany such as Chianti, Vino Nobile, and Brunello, plus some in Puglia. This winery never skimps on quality. Want proof? In 2021, more than 200 of their wines were awarded 90+ points.

We're proud to announce that Barbanera is a BHW direct import, and this outstanding Primitivo that Luca Maroni rated 99 points is one of the reasons why we choose to work closely with this celebrated winery. At almost 30% off, our relationship with Barbanera allows us to bring you this wine for a jaw dropping $37.98. When was the last time you got a 99 point Italian red for that astounding price?!!!
