(Translated from the Italian) Negroamaro 70%, Primitivo 30%. Its majestic pulp brings out a minty and balsamic scent in this champion, which presents both warmth and fragrant density. This happens after the eye has noticed its great integrity to oxidation thanks to the purple color not yet fading to orange. Its total consistency and power are obvious from the inability of light to penetrate. Fragrance emanating from the wine evidences the qualifying enological transformation neatness, and the great relationship between the fruit and the spicy oak. The palate is then viscously enveloped by the unfolding of its powerful yet glossy appearance, with a turgid blackberry whose sweetness is always amplified and whose freshness is sustained by persuasive nuances stemming from the vanilla tinge of the oak. A great wine! Among the best Italian reds of this year, accompanied by adaptability to the palate linked to its simply amazing mellow tannin. Score - 97. (lucamaroni.com, June 14, 2019)
