Rated a Massive 99 points by Luca Maroni, Leading Italian Wine Critic
Gold Medal – Berliner Wein Trophy 2018


With all the love shown for Giordano Riserva Primitivo we thought we should take a look at a step up in the range. With a massive 99 points from Luca Maroni who works on a 99 point evaluation system we thought this must be something rather special, and it is!

While still showing that heft and grunt of the Riserva it also offers a certain refinement along with multiple layers of complexity and allure. Full and intense yet with a brightness and verve through the finish to keep the charm offensive going. Bravo!


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Ripe grapes of the prestigious Primitivo vine variety do not get harvested, but are left on the vine so that their ripening can go on. After about 15 days, grapes are overripen and dry out directly on the vine, giving us a Primitivo with a complex bouquet of red fruits, raisins and clear hints of marasca cherry. In the mouth it develops all its arrogance, its body is captivating, mature and enhanced especially by its aging in barrique. Primitivo Appassimento Rinforzato is a wine which remains in your memory for its strong character and great personality."


90/100 Wine Enthusiast (2018 Vintage)
"Rich aromas of dark cherry jam, anise and orange spice make for an inviting nose. It's rounded and plump on the palate, displaying well-balanced yet hefty tones of jammy dark fruit and sweet spices. It ends lifted and bright, making it accessible in the near term."

  • 5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
