Primitivo - Trastullo - Puglia - Italy
Bags of personality here in this southern Italian bombshell. Intensely flavoured and deeply coloured; black cherries and blueberry muffin come first, followed by underlying light tarry notes that bring an appealing umami richness. Tannic structure gives backbone to the weight of the fruit and its chocolatey richness. Pair this inky, blanket of a wine with spit-roast lamb, or lentils and bacon with roasted beetroot.
