Luccarelli Primitivo 2020
Black Cherry, Blackberry, Oak, Warm Spice
Italian Foods, Tomato Sauce, Pizza
An easy drinking Italian red that’s great with dinner but also holds up to having a glass on its own. Dry, rich, round with medium tannins and a full body.
Leans more New World style than Old World for an Italian with the fruit forward nose and palate. Tastes off dry but it really is dry (likely due to how fruit forward it is)
If you liked this one, you’ll love my similar top value Italian Red.
Tip: Luccarelli has a wine with a very, very similar label. Watch for the word Primitivo
Some words and terms really get people going. For instance “moist” and “mouth feel” make my brain skip a beat. This wine has a really great mouth feel from start to finish. Very lush! (add “lush” to the above list)
