Winner of 4 x GOLD MEDALS & Awarded 97 Points by Luca Maroni. An incredible new release!
This Red Blend made from 50 % Primitivo and 50 % Negroamaro has always been one of our favourite wines from Southern Italy and the newest release is once again impeccable. In terms of style, it has an opulence to it; full bodied, intense, fleshy and complex. An explosion of aromas including spices, licorice, prunes, cocoa, vanilla and ripe red and black berry fruits. It finishes smooth and long. Pure Puglia, the best of Iconic Puglian varietals Primitivo and Negroamaro in action. This is receiving incredible accolades and critical acclaim from the International wine scribes who've fallen head over heals with this wine in recent times. This brand new release has won an amazing 4 x Gold Medals and has been fully endorsed by Italy's most renowned wine writer Luca Maroni with a high rating of 97 Points, making it one of Italy's highest rated blends! But its not just Italy who's enamoured with this wine, one of the most trusted wine publication's Decanter Magazine have sung the praises of the Cinquanta declaring it the best wine from Puglia in the 2019 Decanter World Wine Awards. (That's no mean feat)
