Pazzia Luccarelli Old Vines Primitivo di Manduria

Very entertaining 10 year old Primitivo, very unusual find, very last bottle at a restaurant tonight. Smooth, medium body, tricky. The nose of old leather and cigars. No appreciable tannins and very gentle alcohol. Fruit is jumping of the bottle with tutti fruity, 10 minutes later cherry, in 30 minutes strawberry, finishes almost as a desert, at that time with strong raisins. — 6 days ago

Appassimento Rosso Salento 2015

This 2015 Emporium Apassimento Salento from Puglia, Italy uses grapes that remain on the vine to rasinate. It's an equal blend of Primitivo and Negroamaro. It is ruby in color with a red hue on the rim. Aromas of cherry jam, candied apples and baking spices with a hints of tobacco and white pepper. Flavors of jammy baked fruit and rasins with touches of cherry cola and dried apricots. A good balance of baked fruits and lively acidity. Rich and plush with subtle tannins and a long finish. An awesome bottle at $15. — 6 days ago

Masseria Surani

Heracles Primitivo 2014

First Primitivo ever - At least that I know of. This wine is deep in colour and takes on some of that on the palate. Black liquorice and dark fruits, cherry, currants. Dry with nice acidity and smooth tannins. Liked it! — 3 days ago
