After being sick for several days I didn’t want to waste a good wine on a sore throat and stuffy nose! 🤧 I’m so glad I waited. 49% Primitivo (my favorite) 51% Aglianico (something new for me). A medium bodied wine, deep ruby red in color. Notes of black cherry and slightly tannic. Paired with lemon pepper salmon with a creamy dill sauce.

Really drinkable red; a bit harsh at first but let it breathe for 10 minutes and it had delicious ripe red fruit flavor

Perfectly smooth table wine darkish cherry and ever so slightly fruity. Will never be great but perfectly drinkable #WSJ Club

Delicious! Unique bouquet. Perfect with pasta bake. Fun night reminiscing about Italy.

Great with a read sauce and roasted veggies. Lots of dark berry flavours. Smooth finish.

Raspberries and peppery on the nose... bold, medium tannins... dark berries on the palate and a chocolate finish

Drinking again after 2 months. Very similar. Fruity (dark fruits) and needs something sharp to balance it out. Hint of vanilla.

Nose is full of oak/vanilla and dark berries. Tasting has similar berries but vanilla not as strong. Very few tannins and not much structure. Needs to be paired with something sharp.

STWC. Red fruits. Cherries strawberry and cassis aroma. Hint of chocolate. Taste: sharp fruit on tip with dusty cocoa flavours. Lovely integrated tannins. I must try more aglianico.
