Notes: Primtivo is the first red grape picked in Italy. Even by the standards in Puglia, Primaterra has their growers pick early in the morning and just when the grapes are ready. Over-ripe primtitivo can be harsh. The results at Primaterra are a fresh, juicy, jammy wine with low alcohol. It shows flavors of dark, spiced cherry with an easy finish. It is great at backyard bbq’ with burgers and it’s perfect with pasta and pizza too.
