Tormaresca Red Blend Puglia IGT Neprica 2009
Simple but a great weekday night dinner wine for the price. Not any where close to the complexity of Italy's greats from Piedmont or Tuscany but still give you a taste of the Italian terrior. More fruit forward than one would expect with a somewhat flat finish. Hints of red berry and strawberry.
Rustic and earthy, with chocolate and coffee flavors. We really like this wine a great deal, and it would pair well with red pasta dishes and grilled steak. Great value at around $10.
Rustic and leathery, with ripe fruit and fine tannins. The core is negroamaro earthiness but the cabernet adds some nice balance and complexity. This is a really fine value at around $10.
Nice wine, and pretty good for the price. Kind of low key and smooth, but with little floral spice-notes that dance around over top of the smoothness. This wine seemed a little delicate considering it has Primitivo and Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, but then again, I tried it after having a Primitivo. Overall a pretty good find.
Very good value ... Easy drinking.
