Description

Awarded 99 points by Luca Maroni (Italy’s most famous wine critic), we agree with Luca… it’s utterly delicious. Primitivo (or Zinfandel as it’s known in the USA) offers big, bold, rustic wines with generous, opulent flavours. They do so at amazing prices, apropos the abundance of old bush vines in Primitivo’s Puglia home. The Italians manage to capture the essence of this wine style, with the opulence of fruit perfectly balanced by chewy tannins and rounded acid, making it oh so drinkable, but also the ideal complement to pizza or pasta.

Smells

Dark, heady aromas of baked black fruit, blackberries, mulberries and Black Doris plums with cocoa, brown spice and hints of leather and cola.

Tastes

The palate has generous fresh and baked black fruit flavours wrapped in chewy, savoury tannins and a salivating, lightly saline acid thread, bringing harmony and drinkability. Simply delicious on all levels from the opulent fruit to savoury thread and baking spices and long luscious finish. A red to enjoy and relax with… and fall into convivial discussion. No need for complications or deep thought with a glass of this in hand. Perfect drinking now through 2025.

Rich and elegant red wine.

Excellent Primitivo and well priced. Rich and juicy, full of ripe plum and dark berries. Smooth and on the off dry side. Great alternative if you don’t like strongly acidic reds. Best drinking now to 25 imo.

A very good Italian red, smooth and not too acidic, and a great price too. Bought two cases, and then ordered another two. Great with a good lasagne.
