When the ghouls and goblins are out prowling around your neighborhood on Halloween night, the trick is to treat yourself to a glass of this red gem from the heel of Italy’s boot. Huge, ripe, loaded with dark fruit flavors and scary good!
2013 Antica Masseria del Sigillo, Primitivo di Manduria
91 Points, Wine Spectator: “Harmonious and medium-bodied, this red features a creamy palate of pureed black raspberry and boysenberry fruit, accented by garrigue and cocoa powder notes. Finely detailed tannins add density and definition, but this remains graceful and inviting throughout, with a long, minerally finish.”
Great sipping on its own and perfect paired with roasted meats, hardy stews and other seasonal foods.
