Primitivo di Salento Francesco Mocavero, delightful, full-bodied and juicy red wine, cassis, sweet spice, dark kirsch cherry, try with some duck and a sweet sauce. Francesco Mocavero's best-selling wine in the UK from Puglia's signature grape variety which does superbly well in the Salento region, trained to Albarello bushes in the sandy soils. The variety tends towards uppish alcohol and lower acidity when not kept in check but Mocavero's style has loads of freshness and finesse. The well-balanced structure and alcohol complement the dark damson fruit and hints of spice. Unlike big production Primitivo, there is no stewed flavours, no sickly sweet sugar and no cloying texture. This is just lovely 'smooth' red to drink at any time with anything.
Deep red in colour with hints of violet, lingering sapid bouquet, savoury notes and a meaty smokey palate. A noble accompaniment to roast meat, fullbodied, round and complex, really hedonistic wine from Puglia.
