Morella 'Mezzanotte'

Primitivo, 2016

Italy Red

Salento, Puglia 75cl

A new range to the UK. They have some excellent press. I find so many wines from this region confected, and as you go up the price scale just riper with lashings of oak that too me makes the wine taste like a raisiny ice cream! Not for me.
I am delighted to say this is proper Primitivo. The wines, sadly are not cheap this would be c20.
Black cherry with just the merest hint of raisin on an attractive, fresh nose.
Full of ripe cherry and raspberry fruit with a touch of spice, soft tannins and good acidity, it's a very attractive, juicy Primitivo that is really lovely, even worked well with a lamb curry and vegetable side dishes. Pricewise, frankly it's too much, 15 tops. But one of the better Puglian Primitivo's I have tried.
