Our estate Primitivo is Zinfandel's Italian twin - a perfect mix of red fruits, spice and deep earthiness with a long finish.
Primitivo is the Italian Zinfandel grown in the area of Puglia in Southern Italy. Though they are genetically identical Primitivo is considered to be more feminine and rustic with earthy undertones. The characteristic red raspberry, black pepper-with-plum and a touch of tea characteristics are apparent with a little rose petal and savory earthiness. The palate features a bit of powdery tannin and low acid that is balanced with a long finish. Though it is ready to drink now it will age gracefull for several years.
Recommended pairings: most medium-weight dishes. Pizza, roasted chicken, low-spice Mexican food, and Chinese beef dishes.
