Tarantino Primitivo Segnavento, Pervini 2021

3.571430000 star rating 7 Reviews
The primitivo grape can make a great Italian anyday red, here creating a wine that has juicy blackberry fruit, a medium-bodied palate and a refreshing finish. A cracking choice to have on standby, with or without food.

Accademia Dei Racemi Srl

Gregory Perucci, who owns Accademia dei Racemi, inherited from his father a bulk wine business specialising particularly in primitivo wines which used to be shipped north to Piedmont, the south of France and even Spain to add colour and body to their local wines. The Peruccis were based in Manduria in Puglia where all the best primitivo vineyards are found. With his deep knowledge and long experience of the best vineyards and oldest alberello vines, Gregory began to bottle and sell the wine from his best vats himself. By 2010 he owned 120 hectares of vineyard, was no longer buying grapes, and bottling most of his production. In addition to his primitivo wines, Archidamo, under his Pervini label, from terra rossa soil, Sinfarosa, from black soil and Dunico Masseria Pepe, from very old vines on sandy soil by the sea, he makes negroamaro/primitivo blends and has rediscovered the native sussumaniello grape.

If you’re looking for the ultimate go-with-anything red, you won’t go far wrong with a bottle of this stashed on your wine rack. It’s made by Gregory Perucci, who inherited a bulk wine business from his father shipping Primitivo grapes elsewhere to be mixed with other wines but decided to start bottling and selling the best himself instead. A medium-bodied wine with a little less sweetness than some other Primitivos, it still has a lip-smacking juiciness from ripe blackberry flavours and a refreshing finish. It’s meaty enough to go with almost any food you fancy from Bolognese to burgers, yet won’t overpower more delicate dishes like grilled vegetables and risotto. Bring it to a dinner party and it will go down a storm.
