This is a big fur coat of a wine, but one that clearly says ‘Made in Italy’ on the label. Wonderfully warm and inviting aromas of glossy dark fruits, sweet black cherry, stewed plums, blackcurrant pastilles and sweet cola draw you in. Give it a couple of hours, though, and it really gets into its stride with notes of tomato leaf and sweet tobacco leaf coming to the fore. The palate is velvety with ripe, powdery, fruit-soaked tannins that will continue to soften and the concentrated fruit is refreshed by a tangy black fruit acidity. It’s a gorgeous mouthful. Enjoy with a chargrilled steak or duck ragu. 100% Primitivo aged for 6 months in barrique and the rest in bottle. 13.5% alc. Drink now-2024.
