A wine that needs no introduction. The Giordano Riserva Primitivo is our biggest selling Italian Primitivo and every time a shipment comes in it sells out in days – it is on allocation from the winery and add to this shipping delays means we have been awaiting the arrival of stocks since August with great anticipation. 

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 (2017 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 wine making that celebrates with its appealing hints of minty blackberry jam the natural expertise and techniques of his winemaker. Congratulations!"


Reviews for the 2015 vintage below…


5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"This is fabulously ripe and sweetly fragrant on the nose showing blackberry, plum jam, vanilla pod and milk chocolate characters with subtle spice and hazelnut notes. The palate is succulent and sumptuous, offering terrific fruit richness and velvety texture, leading to a gorgeous silky finish. At its best: now to 2020."


Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com, July 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"Inky black red with crimson edges. Sweet smoky oak fills the bouquet with blueberry and chocolate coasted raisins. Full-bodied, powerful, succulent and juicy with a curvaceous body and a velvet cloak texture. Full of ripe fruit, sweet oak and underpinned with spice and pepper, it is definitely seductive at this stage in the tasting."

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
