Tasting Notes

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. Aftertaste of toasted almond, typical of the Primitivo of Gioia del Colle. 2012 was a brilliant year in Puglia and this vintage is a true gem. Limited stock.

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