2018 Casasmith Cinghiale Sangiovese

2018 ViNO CasaSmith Porcospino Primitivo

Northridge Vineyard,
Wahluke Slope,
Columbia Valley,
Washington

12.5% alcohol

Cork closure

Native yeast

Bouquet:

The bouquet of this Primitivo is really earthy, with aromas of licorice and eucalyptus, then cocoa and ripe blackberries. If you’re looking for a Primitivo that isn’t a “fruit bomb,” this is it– a unique wine from a unique location!

Palate:

I love how bright and vivacious this wine is! Medium-bodied with tart fruit notes of raspberries and underripe blackberries, as this wine opened up, I tasted berry medley and black licorice. Decant this wine to better taste all the expressions it has to offer!

Food pairing suggestions:

If you roasted a bounty of tomatoes at the end of the season, use them to make a roasted tomato pasta sauce to eat with this Primitivo. Other suggestions are Moroccan eggplant tagine, sausage and herb stuffing, white bean and ham soup.

SRP $25
