Thick black fruit and berries are enhanced by oak-driven aromas of spice and vanilla. This is a modern and polished expression of Primitivo with great structure, smooth tannins and good length on the close. Ognissole is Feudi di San Gregorio’s estate in Puglia.
This is a simpatico wine with perky notes of candied cherry, sweet spice, spring flowers, cocoa and vanilla. In fact, it smells a lot like chocolate cake. In the mouth it is smooth and velvety with a medium-long finish.
Despite high expectations surrounding Feudi di San Gregorio’s Puglia property, this nicely packaged Primitivo fails to deliver the goods. The nose is vegetal and stewy resembling minestrone. But the wine does improve in the mouth with spice and good length.
