Weekly Wine – Primitivo

9 Mar

SONY DSCOggi Botter Primitivo IGT
2014
Italy
750ml
13% ABV
$8.95 (LCBO)

I like finding new wines that are good and inexpensive. This is one of them.
The Oggi brand has a few types of wines in Ontario. I’ve reviewed two of them already and was afraid that I might have bought this as a double.
Never had this wine before and I sure will buy it again.
It is nice and dry. It has a full body that is not too overpowering. There is some fruity flavour but I cannot put my finger, tongue, on it. Some such berries – the flavour is sublime and pleasant. There is a bit of acidity in the body of the wine but it is quite nice and complements the dryness and the flavour of the wine.
This is a very nice well balanced wine. It does not have a great wow factor, it doesn’t really stand out but it is a solid wine you can have at any occasion.
