Dark plums, dates, toasty oak, slight dead fruit. Toast & spice, slight plums/dates, strong & long tannins with flavour. Food : enhances the plums & dates, making the wine more savoury, moreish.

Typical Primitivo showing a mixture of singed raisin, as in fruit cake, with plum and a little tannin and the match with the food seems to make the wine juicier and fresher with less obvious dried fruit.

Deep plum colour. Ripe blackberry and liquorice aromas. Very round and fleshy; sweet-fruit flavours, moderate acidity and slightly edgy tannins. Food: the wine?s fleshy texture matches the dish quite well, and the flavours are complementary.

A floral, red berry, spicy nose following through to the palate. Some plum notes finishing with ripe fruit driven tannins. A great match as the flank and brioche dish balance out the flavours and texture of this wine well.

Med-deep red. Spicy, floral dark red fruit on nose. Med-full dry, spicy juicy herbal red berries, lightly tannic. Dry ripe finish. Long. Pairing had a neutral impact on wine, picked up earthiness of the beef.

Deep crimson colour. An attractive blend of ripe jammy fruit and complex leafy aromas. The palate is really refreshing with a complex mix of ripe (but not overripe) fruit and those vegetal influences which are not in the least green. Food elevates the expression of those ripe fruity flavour
