Losito Negroamaro 2020 IGP Puglia

17

Full bottle 1,172 g. Certified vegan and Ecocert organic. 15 days' skin contact in French oak barrels. Aged for eight months in steel tanks and then eight months in bottle before release.
The smell is a smorgasbord of dried cherries, bresaola, kitchen drains and lavender. It reminds me of walking through parts of old Rome in an early summer morning! A wine that, young as it is, would really benefit from a bit of air. I'd just pour it into a fat jug, in fact. No need for pretension. Touch of tobacco leaf, wild cranberry, stemmy organic minerality, hedgerow blackberries, touch of chocolate mint leaf. This is extraordinarily fresh! Tiny trace of tapenade. Silk-shift tannins with a purring bite. This is just perfect – a wine that fits itself in every way. (TC)
