Many of you have been waiting patiently (or not so patiently) for the next vintage of the Giordano Reserva Primitivo to arrive but we're still a month or so off landing that so in the meantime why not get your chops into the Giordano Alberello Primitivo. Super expressive, it shares many traits with its big brother but has an ever so slightly grainier tannin structure and intriguing woodsmoke and meat notes sitting amongst all that dark fruit and spice. A fantastic, tasty winter red.
From Puglia, down in the 'heel' of Italy, Primitivo is arguably more well known in other parts of the world by its alter-ego Zinfandel. Although genetically the same, Primitivo has its own genuine Italian character and this fantastic example has it in spades. It's a big, ripe and intense, dark fruited style with florals and herbs. The tannins are substantial, yet rich and rounded and a gentle acidity keeps it fresh and expressive. 
Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"It is deep in colour, with a garnet red shade. Strong perfumes of fig and plum jam, as well as wooden hints. On the palate, it has an elegant long-lasting finish."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"This is sweetly fruited and beautifully fragrant, displaying lifted aromas of dried cherry, cocoa, toasted hazelnut, game and cake spice on the nose. The palate is succulent and fleshy, and delivers excellent fruit richness and silky texture, finishing superbly long and delicious. At its best: now to 2019."
