Primitivo di Manduria

This is a Primitivo di Manduria with 6 years on it. I should mention that I cut my wine teeth on Zinfandel (when I was a dapper young man...1994 vintage), so I know the grape.

After my customary request to drop the temperature by 5-10 degrees (these guys in Italy too often pull a wine off a shelf and pop n pour, guess I'm wimpy)... Anyways, after cooling and opening, this was great.

Color leaning towards pink/orange, a meat note on the nose, nice spicy black pepper mid-palate.

As expected low acid, mid tannin, and nice finish. Solid. More Primitivo coming soon to a Delectable post near you!!!

Pozzo Falestro

Puglia Negroamaro 2017

Приобрёл для сравнения с La Fenice Squinzano. Очень здорово, именно то, что надо:) Чернослив, черешня, какао в аромате, чернослив и сливочность во вкусе. — 6 days ago

В La Fenice Squinzano Негроамаро - основной компонент, Мальвазия лишь дополняет, имхо. К тому же, оно было полусладкое. Сабж всеми характерными признаками обладает, но без дополнительной сладости. Очень классно!

Neama Salento Negroamaro 2018

I let the server pick the wine, the wife was my choice. I'll let you know how things turn out.

Turns out I made a great choice, and the server not so much.

Desire Lush & Zin Puglia Primitivo

A very solid primitivo - quite fresh on the nose, but much riper in the mouth. Rich and full bodied, with a jammy and spiced finish. — 7 days ago
