Paolo Leo Primitivo 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Paolo Leo is the fifth generation of his family to run this beautiful estate in Puglia, the heel of Italy. His philosophy is simply to keep in harmony with nature, intervening only when necessary and let the character of the grapes show through. Primitivo may have originated in Greece but it has been known in Puglia since at least the 17th century. Paolo's grapes come mostly from the province of Manduria and are fermented at a controlled temperature with daily pumping over to add extra colour and flavour. The final wine is left unoaked to let the vivid fruit show. Youthful deep purple colour. Spicy aromas of black cherry, damson and liquorice. Soft, mouth-filling flavours of ripe plum, blackberry and redcurrant. Good freshness and subtle tannins. Impressively long, aromatic finish with an attractive savoury character. Food match: Try with Baba Ganoush or a Spaghetti Puttanesca.
