Vintages Wine Panel: This easy-drinking Primitivo offers great quality at a modest price. Deep ruby in colour, it’s bursting with attractive aromas of plum, blueberry, cherry and spices on the nose. Dry, medium-bodied with a supple texture, this flavourful wine from southern Italy sports concentrated berry fruit flavours that are joined by mocha and vanilla notes on the mid-palate. There’s some definite grip showing on the toasty finish. Try it with a hearty meatball recipe. My note: A simple, attractive, robust red with pleasing dark fruit. Knock it back!

Primitivo food pairings: meatballs.

Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

I loved this Primitivo and found it to be very good value for the money. Very fruit forward on the nose with a hint of toasty oak. On the palate those Zinfandel-like flavors of raspberry, strawberry and tobacco. I served it with a maple curry chicken pasta and it was heavenly. I think it would go very well with tomato based dishes as well. Great value for the money
