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.


98/100 Luca Maroni (2014 Vintage)
“Absolutely in a class of its own; the best Italian red of the year. A majestic fruity consistency that is stupendously harmonious to the senses, and with an aroma that has no faults or deficiencies. A masterpiece of wine growing and making, that celebrates with its appealing hints of minty blackberry jam, the natural expertise and techniques of this winemaker. Congratulations!"


Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com, November 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"There's a tawny aura to the bricking red hue hinting of a little age. The bouquet is full of sweet fruit and it’s full-bodied and sweet-fruited in the opulent, velvety-textured palate with rich raisin, date and prune-like fruit, Xmas cake spices, hints of almonds and marzipan and vibrant almost peppery tingles. Rich, warm, full-bodied and smooth-flowing and while the fruit is sweet there’s a beautifully balanced savoury undercurrent and the wine finishes satisfyingly dry. Hard to resist."
