Product Description

Size Name: Case of 6

In Italy's deep south, the Puglia region is best known for big, smoky, exuberant wines made from its prized local varieties - Primitivo and Negroamaro in particular. This example is from Angelo Maci, a leading figure in the quality revolution that has occurred over the last two decades. Angelo made this wine purely from Primitivo - more commonly known as Zinfandel in the States. In southern Italy it produces fantastically rich, powerful reds with plenty of ripe fruit. A period of oak ageing has infused the wine's generous fruit flavours with notes of spice and vanilla. This weighty red has aromas of ripe raspberry and spiced plum with notes of cedar wood. Enjoy with game stews, cassoulet, pasta with a rich tomato sauce or a hearty lasagne.

Size Name: Case of 6
I love this wine. Primitivo is the same grape as the Zinfandel, but for me this has far more depth and character than many Californian Zinfandels. Grown in Puglia in the far south of Italy it really flourishes, and improved winemaking is now producing some really good wines, of which this is one in my view.

Pillastro has very full flavours of soft fruit and cherries with a little oak and a slightly smoky undertone which I like very much. It's quite a powerfully flavoured, full-bodied wine, so it goes well with robust food, but I also think it's a lovely glassful on its own. If you like a full-flavoured red with plenty of character and depth, give this a try. It's been a favourite of mine for years.
