This Vino Pellegrino red wine reveals all kinds of grapefruit, roses, lilacs, morello cherries and lemongrass on the nose. As if that wasn't impressive enough, black tea, cinnamon and oriental spices are added thanks to the ageing in small wooden barrels.
The Vino Pellegrino Famiglia Oronzo & Figli Primitivo Rosso Puglia delights with its elegantly dry taste. It was bottled with 6.5 grams of residual sugar. As you would expect from a wine at the upper end of the price range, this Italian wine enchants with the finest balance despite its dryness. Aroma does not necessarily require residual sugar. The texture of this well-balanced red wine is wonderfully dense on the palate. The Famiglia Oronzo & Figli Primitivo Rosso Puglia is exceptionally fresh and lively on the palate thanks to its present fruit acidity. The finish of this youthful red wine from the Apulia wine-growing region is impressive with its considerable length. Once again, there are hints of plum and pink grapefruit.
