This is a wine that clearly says ‘Made in Italy’ on the label. Wonderfully warm and inviting aromas of sun-drenched strawberries, sweet black cherry, stewed plums, sweet kola and fresh tea leaves 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 juicy and smooth with ripe, almost powdery, fruit-soaked tannins and the concentrated fruit is refreshed by a tangy black fruit acidity. 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.
