Masseria Altemura Primitivo Sasseo 2014


SKU 02141


Colour: Dark and profound ruby red. Bouquet: This wine offers the nose full and intense aromas with hints of plums, jams of red fruits and sweet accents of spices. Flavour: A wine of a good body, it has a mouth-filling flavour that is warm and soft and expresses a highly mature fruitiness, supported by a pleasant complex of sweet tannins. Food matches: Its structure makes this an ideal wine as an accompaniment for typical dishes of Apulian cuisine like "Capriata di fave e cicoria" (fava bean and chicory soup), red meats roasted over the coals and roast lamb.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Primitivo Sasseo is a solid value wine to pair with sausage or burgers on the grill. This wine shows sweet tendencies with candied cherry and cinnamon. It offers a solid, albeit one-dimensional approach with soft tannins and fully loaded concentration. Part of the estate's Cru line, Sasseo is aged in large oak casks and should be consumed within the next three years.
