The wine is a dark plum colour with translucent edge. The nose shows lovely aromatics of raspberry, prune and chocolate with a touch of that typical Italian savouriness.
On the palate: Juicy red cranberry, raspberry and cherry fruit, tempered by savoury ferrous notes and a subtle graphite twist. Smooth mouthfeel, firm acid and fine tannins on a nicely dry finish. While it increases in weight and flavour as it opens up, it’s very much a medium-bodied, simple and elegant wine by Primitivo standards. There’s plenty of punch though with 13.5% alcohol.
