Time for wine review #2! This time I’m taking you to Italy with a review of Tenuta Albrizzi Primitivo. Oh, Italy, how I dream of visiting one day! I’ve daydreamed about going to Italy for years. I specifically would love to visit Tuscany to try the incredible variety of wine and be mesmerized by the views of the countryside.
I’m typically a big fan of Italian wines, I especially love the Sangiovese grape, which makes wines such as Chianti and Montepulciano. Omg, recently, I tried a sparkling variety of Montepulciano and my mind was blown! It was absolutely delicious. I usually go into trying a new Italian wine with the mindset that I will like it or love it. It’s quite unusual that I completely dislike it, so, let’s get into the nitty gritty of the review.
The Wine : Tenuta Albrizzi Primitivo
The Grape: Primitivo & Cabernet
The Region: Salento IGP, Italy
The Food: Serve with Italian favorites like pasta or beef dishes
Aroma: Fresh raspberry and cherry, with violet and spice box notes.
Taste: Succulent currant and black cherry introduce secondary, well-integrated flavors of subtle oak. Structured tannins round out a long, complex finish.
Final Thoughts: WOW! I immediately tasted the black cherry and raspberry flavor. The color is so beautiful and deep and the taste is just beautiful. I absolutely loved this red. It’s full bodied, which is what you would expect from a cabernet but it also has a subtle sweetness that adds to it’s drinkability. This is a winner in my book!
