Tasting Notes

Made in Puglia, in southern Italy, this is a juicy, moreish red made from the dark, spicy Primitivo grape.

Expert Opinion

What our expert says

The name Primitivo comes from the Latin word “primitivus” which translates as precocious. It was given the name because of its tendency to ripen earlier than most of the other wine grapes. It is the European twin of the Zinfandel grape. It is believed to have been first brought to Southern Italy by the Greeks. The wine was nurtured by the Benedictine monks in the 17th Century and its popularity has been growing ever since. It has now achieved a sort of cult status as an inexpensive delicious light and fruity wine, to enjoy with roasted or grilled meat, hard aged cheeses and game.


Regional info

On the “boot” of the Italian peninsula, Puglia runs from the spur to the heel. This is a land of rich red earth, ancient olive groves and unspoilt coastlines. Puglia’s flat and sunny plains produce a prodigious harvest of wine as well as vegetables, fruit and grains such as the hard durum wheat commonly used to make pasta and bread throughout the region
