Schiaccianoci Negroamaro del Salento

This wine was really great with BBQ ribs and chicken, a smooth but a little spicy wine would certainly drink again. — a day ago


Torcicoda Salento Primitivo 2019

Super smooth, medium body red wine. I haven’t loved a wine in a while and this one I do. Slight tannins, lots of flavor and complexities but with a silky rich finish. For $19 you can’t go wrong! — 18 days ago

Sinfarosa Primitivo Zinfandel Di Manduria 2017

This wine is medium-dark in the glass, and full-blown dark on the nose. Aromas of black fruit leap out first, but the tar notes follow quickly. It has a peppery smell to it and a healthy amount of chocolate and cigar box. The palate is full and lush. Blackberry notes, anise, mocha and bramble all join together with firm tannins and a lengthy finish. I want a steak with this one, but a sausage and pasta dish would be nice, too. You can also enjoy it by itself as it is quite sip-worthy. — 7 days ago
