2009 Palama "Arcangelo" PRIMITIVO (Puglia, Italy)

Simple, flavorful, and interesting, with a tad of residual sugar, but definitely worth the on-sale price of $5.99 at Houston Wine Merchant.

Medium soft ruby garnet color.  Sweet tangy, plummy/grapy fruit, with a tiny bit of high-toned rock dust.  Soft and ripe, with jiggly plum and very slightly prunish fruit.  Unstructured and fleshy, in a loose sort of way.  A tad bit of residual sugar, but otherwise a clean, pure, fruity finish.  Medium full body.  B-.  Imported by Small Vineyards Selections.
