Fatalone Gioia del Colle Primitivo
Fatalone is a founding member of the Consortium for the Protection of the Wines D.O.C Gioia del Colle which represents over 800 wineries and is committed to promoting the wines of the area and establishing strict quality controls among its members. They were included in the 7th edition of the World Atlas of Wine by Jancis Robinson and Hugh Johnson as one of the four most representative wines of southern Italy. I’m sure our opinion doesn't hold as much weight as that of those esteemed wine writers, but we can agree and have been fans of their wines for many years now. This primitivo is full of intense berry and plum flavors but is not heavy in weight. It has plenty of freshness to make it perfect with food, but is delicious on its own. It wouldn't hurt to drink it cool and it will happily pair with meat or veggies off the drill, Pizza or pasta night or even hearty seafood meals. Organic, native yeasts. During fining the wine is treated to music therapy. If only we took care of our own nervous systems so well!
