Another weird Italian grape from Flaio is the Primitivo. This one is a couple shades darker in color than the Negroamaro and the scent is caramel and fruit. It also starts out smooth but it has a weightier feel in the mouth and it has a spicy finish. The flavors in between are difficult to describe. They aren’t necessarily fruity and there are some subtle tannins. That’s the best I can do. It’s worth a try.

  1. Dear Nevin, congratulations for your new chelllange! I like the way you’re going to talk about wine, without any sort of rhetorical approach: bravo!When you’ll decide to introduce Barbera, I’ll be pleased to send you some articles!In May I’m going to open a new Blog too: the starting-point will be my novel’s subject -the dirty corner of restaurant’s life- and invite whoever -but with special regard, cooks, Chefs, waiters, bartenders, dish-washers- to share and narrate their own experiences, anecdotes, memories about the hidden life of that terrible/terrific job & philosophy of Life which a kitchen can be: a hint of Anthony Bourdain in Italian sauce!The recipe’s section will probably be satirically devoted to politics, trying to create a tailor made preparation for some Italian leaders Ciao!
