Gioia Del Colle Primitivo


Senatore Primitivo 2017

The wine is quite dark in the glass but is also very closed off on the nose. There is some black plum and some tar, but it is surprisingly faint. The palate isn't shy about showing its dark fruit with a layer of savory spice and anise over it. The tannins are not forceful, so pairing with pasta is a cinch, or just sip it. It is very tasty and smooth, and has a lengthy finish. — a month ago

Your grandmother lives in a far too cute rural cottage. You wake up in an antique timber cot, the house redolent with pot pourri. Mid morning sun pours through the broken screen door to an empty kitchen, where blackened steel pots are abundant, but no grandma. You push through the screen, to a wild, wild garden, overgrown with wildflowers, berries, citrus, tomato vines, and a cacophony of terracotta potted colour. Grandma beams in flowing Liberty print, nibbling a nasturtium, a mischievous twinkle in her eye. “Someone finally decided to wake up...” — 6 months ago

Violet Gioia del Colle DOC Primitivo

Strawberries on the nose. Peaches, mango on the tongue. Quite dry for a Rose. We inadvertently warmed this up in the boot of the car in 29 degree heat for a few hours, before chilling it down again, which really brought out the best in the last of this vintage, imho. — 3 years ago

Riserva Fatalone Gioia del Colle Primitivo 2017

This needs time. Plenty of time. I decanted 3 hours, then drank it over days and still quite tannic and lots of acidity. Closed at first, but the nose is opening with inky ripe blackberry, black currants, little bit of vanilla, and a touch of menthol. The palate is more tart currant and blackberry pits with menthol and tree bark. For the price I’d buy a few, start drinking in 3-5 years+, then have each year thereafter. — 4 months ago
