Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

On the nose blueberries, black currants, bell pepper, green vegetables, earth, oak, cloves, vanilla, spices and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, currants, oak, vanilla, cloves, strawberries, raspberries, earth, green vegetables, beef jerky, spices, herbs, black tea and peppercorn.

Medium minus on the finish with firm tannins and tart raspberries.

This is a drinkable red Italian wine from Puglia. Unbalanced with mild complexity. A little bitter for my taste.

Better with food than just by itself, and would pair nicely with pizza. Not for me, though.

A blend of 40% Negroamaro, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Primitivo.

13% alcohol by volume.

79 points.

$11.

Possibly the best red wine for November warmth $10 can buy: available everywhere, Tormaresca "Neprica" Puglia delivers easy pleasure year after year. Full-bodied, with blackberry jam with hints of savory spice and licorice. Negroamaro, Primitivo & Cabernet mix from So Italy – owned by Antinori.

This is a decent bargain priced table wine. Approachable. Medium bodied. Blackberry jam. Tart cherries at the end.

I actually found a 2012, very inexpensive. Fruity, super drinkable and goes well with a sharp sheep cheese. This will be a regular!!

Пронзительно-ежевичный с деликатной бочкой первый нос очень быстро уходит, зато вся его палитра (и даже более) оживает во рту.
Тело среднее ближе к лёгкому, оочень приятно сбалансированное и вкусное. Зер гут.

Either it's too old or there are much better vintages. Used to be an old stand-by. Not anymore! #tormaresca #neprica 2010
