Our Score: 93
A frank and precise expression of the Primitivo grape potential, this wine is full-bodied and structured. Dark ruby in color, with a spectrum of scents: potpourri and Morello cherries, raspberry jam and geranium, cloves, nutmeg and tobacco leaves, balsamic note of eucalyptus and wet limestone, with a finish of dried fruits and nuts.
It is smooth and long, with a persistent complexity and integrated tannins.
Pairing: Aged hard cheeses, beef stew or roasted pork. Pasta with meat sauces.
Appellation: Gioia del Colle DOP, Italy
