PRIMITIVO SUPERDEAL | BUY WITH OUR HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION
Vinified by world renowned vintners MGM / Mondo del Vino, this is a powerful expression of robustly framed Primitivo ( the grape variety that was exported to California where it is called Zinfandel). We loved absolutely everything about this wine. We loved the classic old school livery on the bottle. We loved the way it smelt so good that you just wanted to dive head first into the glass. And we loved how this opulent wine unfolded in the mouth; revealing layers of juicy, plush flavours in the blueberry and spicy dark cherry spectrum. It's a bit of a show pony and we loved it for that too.
This is another brilliant Italian wine brought into New Zealand by gifted importer Steve Bennett MW. It is phenomenal value now we have positioned it under $20 on a case or mixed case purchase. Buy with our highest recommendation.
Steve Bennett MW writes "Primitivo is a dark-skinned grape known for producing inky, opulent, full-bodied, wines with ripe blueberry/black cherry characters with hints of Mediterranean vegetation and powerful but well-rounded tannins. It is a fantastic match for red meat and strong cheeses and offers more flavour for your dollar than virtually any other wine on the market."
The winery writes "Wine with an intense ruby red color with matching highlights. The bouquet is full of red berries, spices, and dark fruit jam. Full-bodied, warm and fruity with balanced tannins. The finish is soft but persistent."
