More about this wine from Puglia, Italy
Italy is home to literally hundreds of wine varietals that can be found all across the boot. This Primitivo hails from Puglia AKA the heel of the Italian boot. Puglia may be the most quintessential version of Italy you can imagine. We mean elderly Nonnas chatting, old men playing cards in the afternoon sun, and, of course, Vespas everywhere. Puglia is old school and a slow version of Italy like you imagine in a classic movie. One you want to settle in on for an extended stay, just like this vino.

The juice is a very dark and opaque ruby color. As the wine hits your glass, the aroma is dominated by smoked meat, dried cherry, cracked pepper, and cassis. The sipping is medium- to full-bodied with berry cobbler flavors and notes of anise, smoke, and cassis that carry through on to the finish, and some dusty tannins to finish it off. The bottle is jam-packed with complex flavor.
