With its bold aromas of blueberry, blackberry, and dark cherry, this Primitivo-Aglianico blend from Puglia is certainly similar to any old BBQ-friendly Zinfandel, and it's good enough in that regard. What it brings in addition, though, is restraint, complexity, and savouriness often not found in those in-your-face summer wines. Indeed, there's a lovely underlying earthiness here, combined with herbal and woody elements, red licorice, and buttery creaminess, all presented in a nicely structured package. It's not elegant, but it's a flavourful effort that shows what Primitivo can achieve.
