2021 Cortenova Primitivo - 92 PTS - GOLD - BEST BUY - BTI

bti gold 2023"Dusty garnet color. Aromas and flavors of salted blueberry compote, peach yogurt, chocolate covered raspberry, and coconut with a round, tangy, dryish medium-to-full body and a warming, refreshing, medium-long finish revealing accents of cocoa nibs, red, black, and purple fruit, dried herbs, and baking spice with coating tannins. Truly representative of an Italian classic; pair this dark brooder with braised beef or boar."
