(2019) This blend of Negroamaro and Syrah comes from vineyards near Lecce with a higher proportion of clay, and it spends six months in older French oak barrels. Dense, dark and savoury, it is not quite so aromatic as the plush 'Versus' Negroamaro, but there's a vinous, vine-fruit ripeness. In the mouth the creamy, dark and sweet fruit swells, a firm rasp of tannin and acidity backs up, the oak not noticeable, but just rounding out the tart cherry freshness of the finish.
(2019) Like the Negroamaro 'Versus', a low yield of 50hl/ha for this Primitivo that spent nine months barriques. Plummy, deep and polished, the nose has some graphite and cedary tones, but an Agen prune and curranty darkness too. The super-sweet ripeness of the fruit powers through on the palate, jammy and ripe, you could spread it on toast, thick with fruit and unfurling tannins, but there is a dry, juicy cherry acidity that bites in the finish, freshening the picture of a very smart Primitivo: big but not blowsy.
