The 2007 Fatalone, Primitivo Reserva

Earlier this month we drank the unique 2008 Fatalone, Primitivo Teres. Excited by the wine I recently purchased the Reserva for only $2 more. The Reserva has a fruitier nature with an interesting array of flavors. It does pack a bit of a punch from the higher alcohol and for the reason I find myself tilting towards the Teres. Still, these wines from Fatalone are great fun! I recommend you try both, they are available at MacArthur Beverages.

2007 Fatalone, Primitivo Reserva, Gioia del Colle DOC, Puglia – $16
Imported by Williams Corner Wine. This is 100% Primitivo sourced from a vineyard planted in 1990 at 365 meters. The fruit is fermented with indigenous yeasts, undergoes malolactic fermentation before aging 12 months in stainless steel tanks and 12 months in Slavonian oak casks. There are riper cherry notes similar to the Teres but no salami aroma. In the mouth the tart red cherry fruit mixes with a touch of balsam and ripe tannins. This medium-weight wine has a mouthfilling nature with delicate wood notes, tangy finish which cause juicy salivation. With air this wine develops a touch of sweetness, dried orange peel and Christmas spices. *** Now-2015.
