Arguably more well known by its alter-ego Zinfandel, Primitivo is a huge, ripe Italian grape which is the pride of the Puglia region in the south of Italy.
This is a bold yet smooth Primitivo from the sunny Salento area.
Pairings - Fantastic BBQ wine. It loves pulled pork, ribs, steaks and anything with a lot of flavor and a mild char to it. Pizza is another excellent choice with this fabulous wine.
Tasting Notes -This Primitivo has an initial fruity burst of blackberries and dark cherries, followed by bigger flavours of pepper, spice and tobacco. Full bodied with ripe tannins and a lively, silky finish.
