Natalie's Score: 87/100

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. This Primitivo (aka Zinfandel) offers dark spice and vanilla smoke on the finish. 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." Pair with bolognese or salami and charcuterie .

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