Appassimento Red Blend

Must be hard to be a producer in beleaguered Puglia. Oceans of IGT's and bulk wines everywhere!

Here's an attempt that I've seen before: Primitivo-based blends made with the appassimento method. Without any doubt looking to differentiate your product in an ocean of cheap mediocrity. Do they make it?

Uhmm, no doubt they mask the local character but the results are not bad. Would I drink it? No, but I don't see why others wouldn't, considering the attractive retail price.
