Fatalone Primitivo Riserva 2017 Organic
Bronze Award Winner Decanter World Wine Awards 2007 Vintage
89/100 Wine Searcher (Very Good: a wine with special qualities)
Fatalone Riserva 2017 is an organic DOC wine (100% Primitivo grapes) from Gioia del Colle in the Puglia region of south-eastern Italy. This fantastic red was awarded both the prestigious Decanter Bronze prize and Le Corone 2015 ViniBuoni d'Italia. It received a possible 91 out of 100 points on Wine-Searcher and Wine Align. This is one of our favourite Italian red wines which we love to introduce to our friends!
It is a natural wine, fermented with indigenous yeast and aged 12 months in stainless steel tanks, 12 months in oak casks and 6 months in bottle.
Intense ruby red in colour with slight burgundy hues, it has a scent typical of very ripe fruits and slightly toasted wood and spices with some balsamic notes. Full bodied, rich in minerality and freshness, the balanced smooth taste of black cherry and plum tends to velvety with ripe fruity notes of blackberry and mulberry, and spices like clove and cocoa. The feature which makes this wine unique is the toasted almond aftertaste.
This Primitivo goes well with strong flavoured dishes such as pasta with meat sauce, roast beef, grilled meats, fish and aged cheese. Also wonderful with dark chocolates.
Serve at room temperature.
