"Juniper berries, grilled herbs, liquorice and walnuts frame the sweet bramble fruits at the core of this refined Primitivo. Smooth and pliant, but by no means overdone, it's cheek-puckering savoury elements and assertive tannins add to its sense of poise. Blackcurrant and dark chocolate linger on a velvety finish. Drink 2023-2030."
