Primitivo is noted for producing food-friendly and accessible wines. This delicious Kosher version from Borgo Reale features notes of blackberry, smoke, licorice and chocolate that greet the nose with typical Mediterranean warmth and charm. Exceptionally well made, with a dry and medium-full-bodied palate that shows a plethora of mixed fruit deliciously overlaid on superbly integrated tannins and acids. Great structure. My note: Smoky, espresso, mocha nose: love it like a warm kitchen (so inviting and comfortable). Aromas of blackberries and leather. This wine goes on and on (or maybe I do). I’d drink this one while watching the Godfather II (not I … needs a more vibrant chianti).

Primitivo food pairings: wild game, roasted meats with mushrooms.

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.
