A robust young wine with blackberry, anise & sweet pepper.
Tasting Notes: This Primitivo is from the south of Italy, the warmer climate brings sweetness to the grape - blackberry, anise & sweet pepper. Notes of vanilla from 6 months aging in oak barrels. Strong young tannins balance the sweet fruit flavours. Primitivo roughly translates as 'early one', with Tempranillo it is one of the earliest grapes to ripen for harvest. It is known as Zinfandel in the US.
