Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Smoky plum with a touch of cocoa and dried herbs. The taste is mainly plums with a bit of the cocoa coming through, and juicy acidity. Lush mouth feel, and a juicy plum finish. An excellent value wine, especially paired with a salty pizza.
Nick Onischuk - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Luccarelli Primitivo 2013 is a good wine for pizza night! This good value wine features cherry, plum and spice. Tasted on December 11, 2015 (86/100)
Primitivo is the Italian cousin of Zinfandel and delivers that same berry ripeness and fleshy purple plums in the glass. Great for movie night too. - 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.
