Casa Contini, Verso Rosso Salento IGT
(VAIR-so sah-LAIN-toh)

 

Tasting Notes: Verso is a very full-bodied, luscious wine made with a small percent of ‘appassimento’, or raisined, grapes. It comes from the same terrific people who make Casa Contini. The grapes are grown on two non-contiguous crus, with about 1500 cases total made, which is of course very small for Puglia. Rich and dark in color, with vibrant spice flavors, it is a hedonistic experience that captures the polished side of Negroamaro and Primitivo.
