Tasting Notes

Very deep red in colour turning almost purplish. The nose reveals a rich perfume of plum, black cherry and also spices like ginger and vanilla.

On the palate it is full bodied, velvety and well balanced.

The joy of discovery. Tasted blind. Deep ruby. Fragrant, developed aromas of licorice, prunes and cedar. Medium bodied with flavours of red berries, sweet spices and earth. Fine tannins and ripe acidity thru a finish of medium length. A balanced wine in a good spot. Drink now. I knew it wasn't a Sangiovese or Nebbiolo but I wouldn't have guessed Primitivo. This was a nice surprise from Puglia.

Great Primitivo, smooth, fullbodied, as you want it

Big bold wine that really needs to be paired with some sort of meat in order to bring out its best flavors. Developed nicely after a few hours.

100% Primitivo.Very intense colour (almost dark red) with purple hues. Intense notes of plum, black cherry, tabacco and vanilla. to the palate is very strong with notes of chocolate and spices. Full bodied, velvety and balanced tannins.I managed to drink half of the bottle on my own ;-)
