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.

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.

Nice and light but with a slight hint of spice with the mainly berry flavors.

This was ok—probably wouldn’t buy again but certainly fine.

Very nice bright red that went excellently with our fresh end of summer garden blowout homemade tomato basil sauce.

Wonderful example of Negroamaro and Primitivo blend laced with Cabernet, this a one a typical wine of Puglia, a hidden gem of black fruit, dense aromatics, leathery character. Also, quite a bargain.
