After the buildup, I was looking for something more. Nothing remarkable about this wine. Some body and a bit of flavor, but not up to the suggestion of the nose. I won't give up on primitivos -- but I don't think I'd re-order Pillastro.
Good average wine for an evening after work with some antepasto.
I have a hard time accepting that anyone likes this wine. Maybe I just don't like primitivo, but this wine - and some similar ones - may lead me to exit WSJwine.

This wine shows nice fruit with a bit of wildness, almost like a Syrah. It's not the most refined wine but an excellent example of Italian "country-style" wine. It's an enjoyable drink best paired with bbq or rich meats.
