Buttery Primitivo Di Manduria from Epicuro

Epicuro makes good quality, drinkable, affordable wines in Italy.  Trader Joes carries many of their wines, and recently, Trader Joes began selling a Primitivo De Manduria, Denomazione di Origine Controllata (2008).  I purchased a bottle for $6 last month, and put it in the wine rack.  Tuesday, I opened it with some meat dish I made - I can't remember exactly what it was, but Thursday I grilled up some pollo asada and the Primitivo di Manduria paired wonderfully with it.  While the Primitivo started off with plum and subtle black berry notes that did not over-whelm on Tuesday, by Thursday it had transformed into a smooth, buttery (not caramely, but a buttery feeling on the tongue) delicious 2 glasses. 

I highly recommend it.
