Galassi, Primitivo, Puglia, IT, 2010 is dark ruby red. The nose is filled with raspberry and blackberry, strawberry, tobacco and spice. The mouth feel is very smooth with flavors of strawberries and plums with earth and spices. The tannins are smooth and there is nice acidity on the finish that gives the wine a nice balance. This wine can stand up to a tangy barbeque sauce as well and acidic tomato sauce on a pepperoni pizza. I would also enjoy this with a meaty Bolognese sauce on a plate spaghetti or a spicy creamy vodka sauce.
