Ruby red intense colour with violet glares. Scent and taste typically fruity of berries and slightly of black sour cherry and plum with some spicy and balsamic notes. A perfect balance of smoothness, freshness and minerality.
The aftertaste of toasted almond is typical of the Primitivo of Gioia del Colle. 2015 was a brilliant year in Puglia and this vintage is a true gem. Limited stock.
