Tratturi Primitivo Salento IGT 2013

tratturi

A great value; friendly and well balanced with a spicy core that stands up to hearty dishes.

Brand: I was unable to locate any estate information, the only details I found are below.

Tratturi is the word for the ancient trails in the countryside of Pulia in southern Italy that shepherds used to bring their animals down from the mountains to the fields.

Winemaking: Fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes: Dark red-violet in colour with aromas of vanilla and smoky barbeque. Blackberry and cherry flavours join grilled herbs and earth notes, whilst black peppercorn, licorice and lingering traces of black cherry comprised the plush finish.
