Jamaica allspice submerged in black cherry, black raisin, African violets, red roses, cooked poppyseed, grilled, wine marinated steak with rosemary garnish. The palate is silky with medium mouthfeel and stealthy tannic hooks are whisked away like burrs and prickles on a satin sock. Sweet Connecticut wrap of tobacco is assisted by a minute mocha and black peppercorn. This took a while to open, surprisingly, but well worth the wait!

Must be hard to be a producer in beleaguered Puglia. Oceans of IGT's and bulk wines everywhere!
Here's an attempt that I've seen before: Primitivo-based blends made with the appassimento method. Without any doubt looking to differentiate your product in an ocean of cheap mediocrity. Do they make it?
Uhmm, no doubt they mask the local character but the results are not bad. Would I drink it? No, but I don't see why others wouldn't, considering the attractive retail price.
