La Fiera Primitivo Salento IGT 2015

Estate: The Botter family has been producing wines under environmentally friendly practices since 1928. Today, the company is managed by the family’s third generation and specializes in wines of the Veneto region of northern Italy. With its association with fairs, the carousel has been the symbol of the Botter family for centuries. The name La Fiera, translates to “The Fair” and refers to the medieval riding fairs in northern Italy. Fairs took place in royal courts and featured lavishly decorated horses and highly skilled riders performing synchronized formations. The carousal with its wooden horses on a rotating platform was developed to replicate the riders at these fairs.

Tasting Notes: Red violet in colour, wonderfully aromatic with notes of blueberry, raspberry and cigar box spice. Jammy black cherry and blueberry are complimented by earth, pepper spice and a trace of summer woods. Silky tannins fuse with mocha and caramel on the plush, fruity finish. Tasty on its own, a fantastic pairing with pizza and pastas. [It was lovely with eggplant parmigiana.]

Pairing Suggestions from the Winery: Pizza, rich pastas, firm cheeses, stews, burgers.

Enjoy at 65°F [18°C]
