Dense purple-ruby in color. Spicy, smoky and deep berry on the nose. In addition to the typical rich, deep berry fruit of Primitivo, this vintage has a nice tannic edge, adding to its food-pairing versatility with richer meats and heavier foods. This is a Zin-lover’s Primitivo vintage.
Favorite pairings for Primitivo are generally hard cheeses like Manchego or dense, dark chocolate, but this bottling will also be versatile with a wide range of hearty fare, especially grilled meats like Korean-style ribs.
