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

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.

Easy Italian wine, with or without food. Would definitely buy again.
