Natalie's Score: 91/100
Mocha and dark chocolate on the nose of this robust Italian red wine from oak ageing. Huge juicy purple plum and blueberry aromas and flavours in this supple, smooth, full-bodied Italian red wine. Primitivo is also known as Zinfandel in California. Finishes with baked blueberry pie and dark spice. Perfect for grilled meats and barbecue.
Primitivo food pairings: hearty stews, sausage cassoulet, gourmet burgers.

Reviews and Ratings
|Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This Primitivo has aromas of earthy red beet, dried autumn leaves, cedar, and lots of sous-bois. Dark berry flavours come through on the palate as well as hints of wood. It is tart and has great acidity with tannins that are present but moderate and well balanced with the acidity and flavours of the wine. A very enjoyable wine!

|Andrea Shapiro, Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Deep ruby colour elegant and pronounced aromas of black cherry, stewed jammy red fruit, dark skinned plum and prune. Also hints of leather and vanilla. Flavours are tart and rich. Cocoa beans and coffee. Also salty tart mineral notes. High acidity, medium plus body and tannins with a medium finish. Organic, clean and vibrant. A perfect pairing for bone in strip-loins and mushrooms.

|From the Puglia wine region, Amastuola (2014) is a juicy Primitivo with plum, blueberry on the nose. Wine grapes for this full-bodied red are certified organic. On the palate the wine has blueberry compote and savoury spice flavours. Great value under $20. this wine has great structure and a zesty acidity to accompany rich stews and spicy grilled sausages. - Community Wine Reviews|
