When you promise to recommend great wines at a great price you become familiar with regions that over deliver. Puglia is an excellent example and this wine is proof positive. The Primitivo grape is described as the father of Zinfandel by winemaker Luccarelli. This is a red that ticks all the boxes for easy drinking, fruit forward and smooth flavour. It begins with a beautiful, fruity aroma that leads to a delicious taste of berries, chocolate and a bit of pepper. Great on its own or pair with pizza, pasta or charcuterie. On sale until the end of October so load up for Thanksgiving because this red will go very well with turkey.
