Budget Wine: Primosole Sangiovese Puglia 2013

primosoleWell. March darker in color and in flavor compared to inexpensive Chianti from cooler climes. Black cherry and baked earth with a little cinnamon yield a simple but pleasant nose.

But the palate is thin showing blackberry and charred wood, with high acidity and grainy, rough tannins. Rustic but without the richness to be stalwart, you will need food to temper the hard finish. It’s tolerable but you can do better.

The grapes are grown organically and it has a bright cheery label so there is that.

It’ll go down easy with some Joe Ely Hard Livin’
