My personal favourite Primitivo. Silky smooth. Small notes of Oak but very fruit forward. Length of finish is amazing. Fruity notes of cherry, raspberry, strawberry but very balanced.

The rich, focused nose of medium-high intensity delivers aromas of dark berry, blackberry, currant, bramble, and spices. The chewy, full-ish bodied, structured palate is spicy with some warmth and has slightly sweet flavours of wood spice, tart cherry, dark berry, plum, and touches of leather. Bright, tart acidity lifts the palate, while ripe tannins are smooth with a slightly chalky texture. Finishes pleasantly dry with mineral notes lingering on the long finish. Tasted Apr/2021.
