WineDiva's Review

Value, rustic, smooth.
Puglia's red variety, Primitivo is served up at a buy-by-the-case price in this bottle. Grapes come from San Marzano and Salento grown at nearly 100 meters above the sea level, with a high average temperature little rainfall; soils are mainly composed by clay. Aged solely in stainless this rustic and earthy red has brown spice, wild red berry and cherry aromas layered with Italian herbs, espresso, tobacco and leather. There's nice levity on the palate; flavours of dried cherry, balsamic and spice flavours dominate. A smooth food-friendly red for sausage, game, hearty pastas and eggplant parmigiana.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Parmesan & Rosemary
