Fatalone Primitivo Gioia del Colle, Puglia, Italy

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. 

Food Match: Strong flavoured dishes like pasta with gravy, roasted beef, game, grilled meat as well as fish and aged cheese.

Yes, a bit more expensive than the run of the mill but a much cleaner taste and no chemicals - a win for all
