Coppi Peucetico Primitivo 2007 Wine Review
Natalie's Score: 90/100Deep plushly ripe purple and black plum aromas on the nose with some blueberry jam on the palate. It's full-bodied and dry with layers of voluptuous dark fruit. Perfect for meat lovers' pizza and meat sauce pasta.
Primitivo food pairings: veal scaloppini in a sun-dried tomato sauce. Perfect Pasta and Tomato Sauce Wine

There's a lot going in this Primitivo. Nice fruit up front with aromas of plum and spice. I really like the prune flavours on the palate and the wine has a good balance of fruit and acidity with only a very slight bit of bitterness at the end. This wine pairs well with big Italian meals like lasagna or bolognese based dishes. I tried it with a meat based (lightly spiced) spaghetti and it was excellent.

Ruby red in colour, this wine exhibits a beautiful nose with jammy fruit, plums and cedar indicating good varietal character for a primitivo, or Zinfandel. Some pronounced structure on the palate, including a good presence of tannins, body and acidity. A lovely and interesting wine!
|Jane Staples Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Opens on the nose with red plum, prune and dark cherry aromas, then on the palate vanilla, cinnamon and a hint of pepper combine with dark fruit flavours. Spicy finish. Goes well with salami and olives, or tomato-sauced dishes.
|Gioia del Colle is in the very heart of Puglia and enjoys the honour of being the Italian “hometown” of Primitivo. In the 1700s, a local priest identified these grapes and selected for their name a Latin word, Primitivo (which translates roughly as “first to ripen”). Sunny mulberry, plum, vanilla and spice aromas. Interesting mix of fresh and dried fruit on the palate, with good replays of the nose. Maturing nicely, it’s ready to drink tonight.
