lush, charming, delicious. This southern Italian red varietal is one of Southern Italy’s most important grapes; it is also the father of California’s stalwart, Zinfandel. It front-loads cherry jam and sweet plummy aromas, pipe tobacco and licorice with plenty of vanilla.

Tasting Notes :

Primitivo, which is believed to be an ancestor to Zinfandel, is grown and made into lush, fat, cherry-fruit-laden reds which are best drunk young. The aromas and flavors are decidedly cherry red, with some vanilla and spice, and a hint of sweet anise.
