Seratina Puglia 2011 Primitivo, $13.99, 90 points, poured a deep ruby with flashes of maroon and a clear rim.
Blackberry on the nose was touched with a floral note.
Near full-bodied with good acidity (It's Italian! What else!) and mild-plus tannin.
Flavors of blackberry, licorice, sweet tobacco, mint, and cola were remarkably well balanced, interesting, and delicious.
Finished long on the trailing palate, tannin, some warmth from the 14% alcohol, and plentiful white pepper notes.
I bought this red wine at Lucia's Bodega in Windham.
Paired well with a Brick-Oven pepperoni pizza!
