Wine of the Week - Epicuro 2010 Primitivo


This wine's primary scent is strawberry.  There are peppery notes underneath, but that might just be how I was reading the alcohol.  Because, to taste, alcohol is very present.  Also tannins.  Some dark cherry develops on the back of your throat at the end of what is a very slow finish.

After leaving half a bottle corked for a day, it was only slightly mellower, and had a bit of chalkiness to it that I actually enjoy.

All in all, a somewhat harsh wine.  But decent.

14% alcohol
