2013 Botter Primitivo Doppio Passo Salento IGT

2013 Botter Primitivo Doppio Passo Salento IGT. I wanted to like this wine, but I just can’t. Smells cheap and artificial and it is cloyingly sweet on the palate. But not enough density of fruit to pull it off. Not a bad finish, but tough to pair with food. This is one I will avoid. The ripasso is a good idea in general but the execution is off. #wine #italy #salento #igt

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
