Reviews and Ratings

Lots of mocha and dark chocolate on the nose from oak aging. Sweet purple plums on the palate. It's full-bodied with layers of voluptuous dark fruit. Perfect for meat lovers' pizza and meat sauce pasta. This Primitivo (aka Zinfandel) offers dark spice and vanilla smoke on the finish. Pair with Bolognese or salami and charcuterie. MINE: Gioia del Colle is nestled in the centre of the Puglia region and is known as the Italian heart of Primitivo (Zinfandel). Deep plushy ripe purple and black plum aromas on the nose with blueberry and mulberry on the palate. Dry, full-bodied with velvety tannins and good acidity. Drink now with a veal Parmesan (with lots of freshly grated cheese and a rich tomato sauce). OTHER:Pimitivo was identified in Gioia del Colle, in the heart of Puglia, in the 1700s. The wines crafted here were historically robust and tannic, but more modern approaches in the vineyards and winery have given rise to more elegant and sophisticated expressions, such as this one. Expect this to be rich with impressive dark fruit, spice and vanilla tones. It will be a great match for grilled mushroom burgers or barbecued sausages (Vintages Panel, updated). - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
