Passitivo Primitivo

Primitivo, also known as Zinfandel is Puglia’s hero grape. It normally produces beautiful full-bodied red wines, ripe with dark fruit and vibrant tannins. 

This organic Primitivo has been produced using the appassimento method. This is when grapes are dried, prior to fermentation. The grapes are normally dried on racks or straw mats for a period of weeks/months, which concentrates sugar and flavours in the grapes. 

The result, in this wine is a wonderful drop, rich in flavours of raspberry, redcurrants and cherries. This fabulous Primitivo has also been part-aged in oak, which brings spice aromas to the wine, adding to its complexity.

At 14.5%, this wine pulls no punches and is a perfect match for rich red meat dishes and mature cheeses.
