2009 Tormaresca Neprica Puglia
|An interesting blend from the Southernmost part of the “Italian boot,” this wine is made from Negroamaro, Primitivo and Cabernet Sauvignon (40/30/30). It’s a unique combo that is also the origin of the “Neprica” name, and it packs a good punch for only $8.89. Hard to beat from a value perspective.|
Nothing crazy jumps out on the nose, a little spicy, floral, but then the dark fruit flavors with some chocolate and tobacco kicks in. Dry finish, some pepper that hangs out for a while. Easy to enjoy.
Overall, not a bad wine at all for the price. You’d be hard pressed to find many that are better. This is a good everyday wine for grilling and pizza; you almost can’t go wrong. It’ll go on our Value Picks list.
