Cantina Sociale Cooperativa, Copertino Riserva 2000

~$12US, Negroamaro, Copertino, Puglia, Italy

9 years old and just getting started – this is pretty serious juice for under $15.  Popped, poured, and got trampled by goat-funk. 2-3 hours later, it was nosing and drinking beautifully – with 2 parts red cherries, 1 part blackberries, and a dash of tamari soy and a whiff of the barn. Savory and sinewy, but with a bright balance and good length. Tasted again, on day 3 and it continued to evolve with weaker fruit, but meatier texture. Definitely for those inclined to snack on beef jerky instead of candybars. A fantastic value at least on par in terms of quality with anything from artisinal French and Spanish producers at this price-point. Give it another 3-5 years…
