The Primitivo Riserva is Fatalone’s flagship Primitivo that has been built to last for years to come.  By law, this wine is to see 24 months aging in order to accomplish the very high standards of this region.  The organic Fatalone Riserva spends its first 9 months in stainless steel in order to complete both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, and this then aged for one year in old and large Slavonic oak barrels.  At least 15 months of aging in bottle follows, resulting in a wine that is dark and intense, yet so far from being a jammy Zinfandel-like expression of Primitivo.  There is massive acidity in the final bottle, which complements the black cherry, rich earth, and toasted wood notes.  The wine undergoes music therapy during its time in wood to take advantage of the rhythmic air pressure gently speeding up the breathing and micro-oxygenation of the aging wine.  An absolutely gorgeous Primitivo that deserves serious attention, enjoy this wine with rich meats, game, and spicy cheeses.
