MARCHESI DEL SALENTO 2015 PRIMITIVO
“Cherry color, fruity aroma, young Primitivo, medium alcoholic and acid levels, wine with small complexity, medium ending and low tannin. Cherry, woody and strawberry tasting notes.”
Toppers note: Primitivo is known as the mother of Zinfandel and probably originated in Asia Minor countries, the Italian style is more robust with rustic earthy flavors that are perfect on the palate in the fall. Salut!
Toppers note: A smooth gentle Viognier, that appeals to the nose with subtle aromas of tropical fruit and naunces of Asian spice. The body has light hints of stone fruit and exoctic berry, accented spice and just enough acidity for structure. The finish has a velvety texture on the palate which invites you to the next glass. Wine would do well socially and also with shellfish.
