Natalie's Score: 89/100

Sweet black plums on the nose and palate of this supple, robust wine. This turbo-charged red wine is made from Primitivo grapes, aka Zinfandel. The fruit is blackened and charred with lots and lots of toasty oak. Finishes with mocha and oak. Great with BBQ or grilled meats.

Primitivo Di Manduria food pairings: three-sausage pizza, charcuterie, sausage cassoulet.

Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Jammy berry and spice aromas with a rich off-dry full-bodied, ripe stewed berry flavoured finish. Tannins and medium-mild (dusty) with medium acidity. Enjoy with gourmet burgers. Tasted July 2017 by @sommsossa | bespoketastings.ca
Primitivo di Manduria from Puglia is becoming increasingly popular. Papale Linea Oro 2014 is robust and ripe with sweet dark plums, smoke and spice. Tannins are plushy. Pair with smoked ribs. - 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.
