Piana del Sole Primitivo Salento 2006

Member Review by Robert Dallas Gray:

Deep, dark purple. Nose of eucalyptus and tobacco, acetone and a hint of banana, with a slight, very clean chlorine smell. Lots of black fruit, sticky tannins and a medium to full body. A hint of mint, and more than a hint of licquorice. The tannins stick around, along with the licquorice. Nice, but problematised by that weird chlorine smell. Would probably work with steak. (Afternote -- like the other Piana del Sole, this oxidises *fast*. Not marked down, as I guessed this might happen ...)
