Tasting Notes

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. Drink alongside 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.

Reviews & Scores

Ripe, yet slightly high-toned, with hints of grilled herb accenting the black cherry and currant fruit. 
84 Points, Wine Spectator
