Deep plushly ripe purple and black plum aromas on the nose with some blueberry jam on the palate. It's full-bodied and dry with layers of voluptuous dark fruit. Perfect for meat lovers' pizza and meat sauce pasta.

Primitivo food pairings: veal scaloppini in a sun-dried tomato sauce.

Mark Cochrane Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

There's a lot going in this Primitivo. Nice fruit up front with aromas of plum and spice. I really like the prune flavours on the palate and the wine has a good balance of fruit and acidity with only a very slight bit of bitterness at the end. This wine pairs well with big Italian meals like lasagna or bolognese based dishes. I tried it with a meat based (lightly spiced) spaghetti and it was excellent.
Malcolm Lamont WSET Adv, CSW rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Ruby red in colour, this wine exhibits a beautiful nose with jammy fruit, plums and cedar indicating good varietal character for a primitivo, or Zinfandel. Some pronounced structure on the palate, including a good presence of tannins, body and acidity. A lovely and interesting wine!
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Opens on the nose with red plum, prune and dark cherry aromas, then on the palate vanilla, cinnamon and a hint of pepper combine with dark fruit flavours. Spicy finish. Goes well with salami and olives, or tomato-sauced dishes.
Gioia del Colle is nestled in the centre of the Puglia region and is known as the Italian heart of Primitivo. In the 1700s, a local priest named these grapes with a Latin word, Primitivo, which means "first to ripen." - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
