Why we love it
Made with Primitivo grape and a small percentage of Merlot, and refined in barriques for a short period to add complexity, this big, bold red wine has all the power and fruit of the Primitivo with a touch of elegance given by the Merlot.
This red wine has an intense, complex nose with ripe fruit from the Primitivo and spices from the ageing and in the palate is big, full, warming, and persistent with a big structure. This red wine not only perfectly matches rich dishes, game and very mature cheeses but can also be sipped on its own.
The artisan who made it
The De Falco winery, now with Gabriele the current generation, has years of experience producing high quality wines in the very heart of the Salento area, at the heel of Italy. Puglia is one of the largest wine regions in Italy and its truly fantastic climate not only produces native grapes but also provides the perfect environment to grow a large variety of international grapes, to produce big and bold wines.
