The Mosby Primativo displays deep ruby color in the glass, hinting at its character. Rich aromas of maple, cedar and leather lead to vivid flavors of boysenberry and spiced crab apples. These integrated layers of flavor flow into a well-balanced finish with hints of toasted walnut skins. Primativo is grown in Apulie (Puglia, Italy) and is a relative to Zinfandel. The grapes for the Mosby Primativo are grown in the central coast, 20 miles inland from the Pacific ocean. This location has the ideal heat factor needed to grow good Primativo.
This wine is a natural paired with grilled meats…we like it with tri-tip, pork loin or grilled Portobello mushrooms. It’s excellent with lamb and lovely with hearty pasta dishes.

The Mosby Sangiovese has a lot going on! We detected amazing scents of cocoa, dried cherries, lavender and lilac; these delightful aromas progressed into layered flavors of crushed dark berries, spice and light oak. The full body of this release is nicely balanced by brisk acidity and smooth tannins, making it an ideal wine for food pairing. Our suggestions include beef or game ragus, tomato-based pasta sauces or spicy Tuscan-style chicken. This wine is ready to drink now, but will cellar well for three to five years.

The Mosby Ossessione is our first true Italian import. Bill traveled to Italy and worked in conjunction with grape growers there to produce this wine. The grapes are from a pampered vineyard located in the rolling hills of the Marche, Italy. Swept and cooled by breezes off the Adriatic Sea, this area is renowned for its intensely-flavored Montepulciano grapes. These are the true varietal grapes of Montepulciano, not the Montepulciano Nobile grapes, which are actually Sangiovese. The Montepulciano varietal wine most commonly sold in this country is the Montepulciano D’Abruzzo.
True to its heritage, Ossessione has brilliant ruby color and an intoxicating nose with perfume-like notes of woodsy sandalwood, brown spice and maple. Flavors, of dried red currant and spice finish with medium tannins and a hint of vanilla. The wine is ready to drink now, and would paor very well with roasted meat dishes or a selection of Italian cured meats served in the antipasti style.
