There is a reason why this wine was awarded at Vinitaly. Having all the characteristics of a true Primitivo, just more refined, more elegant, more subtle and carrying a very big punch at 14.5%. You will never see it coming ;-)
Think of Negroamaro as a Primitivo with a little spice. The style here is a bit more wild than its' better known brother, but no less intense or full. Another wine you want to pair with a hearty plate of beef or pasta with ragu sauce.
Get out the pasta and a lot of red sauce for this one. Bolognaise = perfect. Deep dark red, the sweet vanilla scent will greet you, plums and cherries will follow. Very full and easy drinking. More effective than any sleeping pills ;-)
This mix of Nero d'Avola, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, brings a fresh, slightly dry taste. Cherries just jumping out of the bottle!
This should be the first Primitivo out of the box. Like every Primitivo, this is a full bodied wine tasting of plum and dark fruits. These grapes got a lot of sun, so even though it is a young wine, it still caries a lot of flavor.
Grillo delivers a more full and complex flavor than the others in this months box. A bit oily, this wine has a full body and a long, soft, fruity finish. Very subtle and goes with everything.
I wasn't completely truthful here. Indeed this wine is a chardonnay base, it also blends Catarratto to give it a fuller flavor. A great balance between flavor and acidity, with a long finish you will enjoy.
A perfect light white for a hot day. Pale and light in alcohol, this straw yellow wine has a very fruity aroma and will leave your mouth clean and fresh. Delicate and light. Stay with the salads here.
If you were ever looking for an example of a straw colored white, this is it. Classic chardonnay with green hints. Fresh, fruity and just enough acidity to go perfect with some oily fish.
