Very impressed by this ripe yet well defined red from Puglia. I’m seeing increasingly good wines coming from the south of Italy. There’s plenty of sunshine here, so the wines are usually ripe and sweetly fruitied, but the good ones (like this) show great definition. Astute commercial winemaking. It’s not the world’s greatest ever wine, but it’s just such fun to drink.
Anarkos Puglia Rosso 2010 Italy
A blend of Primitivo, Malvasia Nera and Negroamaro. Very open, sweet and fruity with good definition and a bit of spiciness. Really lovely pure berry fruits here with some lushness and smoothness, but very nicely balanced. 88/100 (£8.99 The Real Wine Company)
