Palamà, Arcangelo Primitivo I.G.P.
(ark-AHN-geh-loh pree-mee-TEE-voh)

 

Tasting Notes: Palamà is a small estate in a sea of gigantic producers–a speck of an island on the Salento Peninsula–and they would have it no other way. With perhaps the lowest yields in the entire appellation, Palamà is committed to the highest quality “everyday” wines that can be produced, without the fuss of new oak, just ripe, fresh, powerful fruit. His Primitivo is a delight; lush, yet bright and approachable, with notes of dark anise, cedar, and blackberry confit.
