Very rich fruit but not too heavy which is refreshing - 2012

We drunk this with spicy sausages and followed up with some strong cheeses.
Not sure the spicy sausages was the right thing to have with this wine. But nonetheless we really enjoyed it.
Deep rich colours but amazingly with a sweet taste of strawberries! The spice ruining our palate I reckon.
A definite to buy again.

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.

This unusual red is a blend of Merlot, Primitivo (AKA Zinfandel), and a varietal I am unfamiliar with, Negroamore ("black love"??). It is full bodied and a great cocktail wine, but has flavors I have never tasted in a red wine before - cinnamon and spice in a medium bodied slightly jammy fruit bomb. The tingly lingering finish reminds me of nothing so much as peppermint extract! Strange but wonderful 🍷😺

Solid wine .aroma of fresh raspberries and bursting with oak, cherry, cigar and Tuscan soul. Real solid wine would go great with beef, hearty meats and rich cheese! Long finish!

Rounded mouthfeel, long and smooth finish. A really luxurious, concentrated wine. Love it

Smoky and deep. Woody. Goes down smooth, slightly spicy aftertaste.
