My wine choice of the day is this powerful italian Primitivo from the Puglia! It's an authentic 100% Primitivo Salento IGT, organic certified, produced by Cantine Paololeo available at SAQ stores for only 16,50. A great choice for any winelover looking for an intense, generous and rustic "rosso"! Let it breath a bit in the glass so it can express its full potential...a nose of concentrated fruit and marmalade, followed by some spicy and animal flavor hints, mostly in the mouth. Gladly, acidity and tannins are present to complete its onctuosity and complexity in the palate. A delicious and fleshy wine I suggest you to drink slightly fresh! Molto buono! (Marina La Forgia)
(By Marina La Forgia) Let me introduce you to this very pleasant white wine from Bodegas Ontañon made with Viura, indigenous grape from Rioja. Vetiver is a good mix of terroir expression and winemaking. It combines intense tropical fruits aromas with some buttery and smoky notes that make it very original, onctuous and rich without losing any elegance and delicacy in the palate. Yes, it's a 2014 vintage which means "an aged white", and it really resumes the authentic Rioja style. However, at the same time this Vetiver is an innovative and audacious type of wine that I really loved to discover. It's good to get out of the comfort zone sometimes, wine tasting speaking...right?
