COLOR: Ruby red with delicate garnet undertones. NOSE: The minerality of the nose creates a delicate combination of morello and sour cherry and prune. Floral and spicy notes follow in a superbly persistent finish. PALATE: Gentle tannins, impressive acidity combine with the classic delicacy and alcoholic content of Primitivo in the flavors of this once forceful but now elegant and noble wine. PAIRING: Pasta with rich meat sauces, excellent with red meat and in particular lamb. An ideal pairing for moderately aged as well as intense ripe cheeses.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Primitivo shows tight lines and a solid consistency. The bouquet opens to dark fruit tones of dried blackberry and Morello cherry with light nuances of leather and tobacco at the back. The wine delivers good depth and a chewy, ripe style that is very indicative of the greater school of Puglia wines.

Wine SpectatorThis is fresh and medium-bodied, with hints of mocha and smoke lacing the dried raspberry and black cherry fruit. A balanced red, showing spice and citrus accents on the creamy finish. Drink now through 2018. 20,833 cases made.
