Our opinion:

This was our first “Primitivo Puglia” wine ever, I believe. I was skeptical because I’d never heard of it before, but maybe that’s just ignorant. It was delicious!! Medium bodied, somewhat of a dark fruit flavor. Give it a minute to aerate and voila … verrry smooth, earthy, yet sophisticated.. and drinkable! Yes. It’s gone now…. well except that tiny bit in Kosta’s glass… but I think he’d notice if I took it. 🙁

Anyway, I want more, so that must mean something!! Buy this one. For us.
Others Say:

We couldn’t find any specific reviews of this wine and vintage, but here’s is a description of the winery:
“The Feudi di San Marzano in Apulia is the latest project by Valentino Sciotti. He is a man who not only dreams big, but who has the vision, determination and professionalism to make sure that his dreams come true. In the case of Feudi di San Marzano, Sciotti’s concept is very simple. He stumbled upon the Cantina Sociale di San Marzano, with its deep tradition in winemaking, and immediately saw potential. By making a few changes in the already state of the art cellar and installing the brilliant Mario Ercolino as chief winemaker, he would be able to produce modern wines with outstanding varietal expression.”
