Dusty garnet color. Aromas of raspberry, dried figs and dates, peony blossom, and cacao nibs with a medium body and a medium berry tart and seeded toffee finish. A fruit-forward Primitivo that’s sure to please.

Primitivo

Serve in a Zinfandel Wine Glass
Primitivo is synonymous with Zinfandel, they are closely related grapes from the same Croatian ancestor known as Crljenak. Primitivo is the Italian version of Crljenak and Zinfandel is the American. Like Zinfandel, it produces lush fruity red wines with soft tannins and higher alcohol.
