Strawberry sauce, red roses and peppermint leaves on the nose; on the palate a wonderful balance of ripe fruit, lively, but not aggressive tannins and a subtle note of cranberry that lingers on the finish.
Primitivo comes to us from the Puglia region of southern Italy, but did you know that it’s a twin to California’s famous Zinfandel? They share the same DNA and like many siblings, have travelled different paths, both adapting to their new homes and developing slightly different character. Many consider the Primitivo clone to be superior with more lush, fruity components and it’s becoming more and more popular in California vineyards.
