A wine that is full expression of the potential of Apulian nature, the Rosso dei Vespa combines the traditional character of Primitivo di Manduria with the fresher and more pleasant notes of the younger products. The two souls of this vine are linked: powerful and complex but at the same time pleasant and slender in its drinkability.

Pairings: Perfect for fish starters and light meat dishes.

93 pts - Ken Gargett (Wine Pilot)

From the Apulia region of Italy, Primitivo (Zinfandel) is the signature grape on offer here. A full flavoured style. Deep maroon in colour, this has a powerful nose with notes of warm earth, leather, chocolate, black fruits, black olives and bay leaves. Quite spicy, there is good concentration throughout, while never losing focus over a lingering finish with very fine if slightly grainy tannins. Enjoy now and for the next six to eight years.

92 pts - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

Full brick-red with most of its purple tints gone, the bouquet is all about licorice, stony mineral/ferrous notes, a suggestion of dried blood. Primary fruit is somewhat subdued, with raisin/licorice nuances strongly evident.The palate is rich in the centre, full-bodied and ample on the tongue with abundant soft, powdery, drying tannins. Very ripe and plush. It's a style, and has its own appeal. (First bottle slightly oxidised; the second was fresher and much better)
