[BLANK_AUDIO] [MUSIC] A-Mano, Prima-Mano, Primativo 2003. This wine is a
grape called, Primitivo. How did you like this wine? You
don't have to love it. It's completely subjective. As we
taste on you'll see. We're going from lighter to biggest.
But there's really no such thing as light in Southern
Italy. These are all big, tannic wines. This wine, to
me, is medium body. It smells very, very earthy. It's
also a musty, in the nose To me I get,
as I smell it again. I get dark cherries. I
also get dried fruit, like raisin. And then when I
taste it. Again, dried fruit. Dried fruit but light, it's
a little acidic. I like that my mouth keeps watering.
That's a food wine. The more you salivate the more
food friendly the wine is But without food, without an
ounce of fat to change these wines, we really can't
judge them entirely. We can only say I didn't really
care for it like that, but let me try with
food. If we had olive oil on these tables and
a little piece of italian bread, or french bread whatever,
a little dab and a bite and then taste the
wine again. Fat breaks open all those [UNKNOWN]. And it
helps actually soften a lot of the bitterness in wine
when they're young or they're too warm. Villa Raiano Taurasi.
Taurasi is the king of Southern Italy. As far as
wines, like, you know it's like, Bordeaux is the king
of France, Taurasi is considered the king of Southern Italy.
It's not all of Italy. These are monster wines made
with Alianaco. Alright, so let's smell this wine. What do
we smell in this of Organico versus the last? This
is completely raisin to me. Beautiful. Open a box of
raisins, there it is. Coffee, a little eucalyptus. Oh my
god, there it is! See, you're all getting better and
better. Let's taste this wine together. You're still salivating. There's
a little bit of that tightness, but more fruit comes
in to save the day. That's what we're looking for,
the balance of wines. These are beautiful wines. They need
to be given a chance. If you think that they're
a little too much right now, consider them cooler and
consider them with food and you have six beautiful wines.
