Mocavero

Curtirussi Verdeca 2015

This wine smells like washrind barny creamy goat Camembert cheese. Front notes on the mouth smoothly escalate front delicate to a clean steely limey tongue with a sharp uplifted acid zing before the succinct yet soft finish. I like it! — 5 days ago

I Muri Puglia Negroamaro 2016

Black fruit & baking spice. What I want to be drinking on a cold winter's eve. Negroamaro always seems to be a great deal. — a day ago

Puglia Primitivo 2017

Agree with the reviewer Madeleine. Spicy and very, very smoky. Almost reminds me of the whiskey Laphroaig. — 5 days ago

Casa Vinicola Apollonio

Vigna Vitrilli Grande Salento Rosso 1997

17/20 (92/100) Насыщенный аромат с нотами сухих чёрных чайных листьев, чернослива, изюма, шоколада и морёной древесины. Тельное с умеренной кислотностью и чуть суховатыми танинами. Красивое и зрелое вино - неожиданно для Апулии в столь почтенном возрасте. — 9 days ago

Masseria Altemura

Sasseo Salento Primitivo 2015

Initial impressions of ripe savoury characters even somewhat grapey. Like most Italian varietals made to go with food. Not as full bodied and sweet as some Primitivos I have had. @Jeff Savigny gave me this idea where he recently matched a Pizza with Zinfandel so I thought I would do the same with Primitivo from Puglia in Italy, which is the same grape. It was a great match with homemade Pizza. The wine giving a tarry earthy undertow throughout. POSTSCRIPT Points off for a ridiculously heavy bottle. You could do Curls with the empty bottle. — 11 days ago

Pillastro Puglia Primitivo 2016

Lovely bottle of wine, sublime straight out of the bottle and perfectly smooth without even needing to breathe. Breathing only made this bottle even more incredible. One of my top 10 thus far! — 10 days ago

Agricole Vallone

Graticciaia Salento Negroamaro 2013

17/20 (92/100) Красивый и элегантный аромат с нотами сушеных чёрных ягод и пряных трав, вишневого варенья, табака и изюма. Довольно тельное и кислотное, не очень танинное с заметной спиртуозностью во вкусе. Прекрасный аромат, но пить просто так тяжело, нужна закуска. — 9 days ago

Angiuli Donato

Puglia Primitivo

Incredibly smooth and very silky and soft. Nice dark purple color. Low in acidity. Low to medium tannin. A little grip comes a little later in the long finish. On the tongue there is a pleasant amount of ripened plums. It is Syrup-like once it enters. Flavors of juicy prunes are strong with a hint of cigar and tobacco and some fig. Really enjoyed this wine. Went well with famous home made meatballs and spaghetti squash. — 10 days ago

Ca' Marrone Appassimento Rosso Puglia Negroamaro Blend 2013

So this is a play on words and style of Amarone. First off, it’s a Puglia blend of negroamaro but the brand claims the grapes are dried before primary ferment. So it was interesting to say the least. It did have that deep concentration of black fruits and a hint of spice. Nice solid tannins. Went well with thanksgiving. — 19 days ago

Masca del Tacco

Puglia Susumaniello

Big red wine with plenty of junk in the trunk. Velvety mouth feel. Ripe blackberries, plums, black cherries, chocolate. Fantastic with pan seared ribeye rubbed with salt, pepper, smoked, paprika, and espresso. — 15 days ago
