Jorche Soltema Primitivo del Salento 2020

Salento, Puglia, ItalyDalila and Emanuela Gianfreda are fifth generation winemakers at Jorche, overseeing the 31 hectares of vines surrounding their Salento estate. This Primitivo grows in the red, iron-oxide rich sandstones throughout the property, and was aged 9 months in barrels and 3 months in bottle prior to release. This mouthfilling red is stencilled with ferrous notes, woven with wild plum, rockrose, wild blackberry, and scrubby Mediterranean herbs. Tannins are ample and sticky, hugging the sides of this full-bodied wine through the pink pepper finish. Fantastic value for this lamb-ready red.Tasted: 11 December 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
