PRODUCTION / IMPORTATION
Giovanni di Mastrogiovanni
Primitivo is a dark-skinned grape known for producing inky, tannic wines similar to a Zinfandel, intensely flavored and deeply colored.
Wine Spectator – “There’s a rich, mouthfilling quality to this medium-bodied red, offering a velvety mix of spiced cherry, mulberry and herbed olive, with accents of mocha and graphite. Plush tannins show on the juicy finish. Drink now through 2021. 2,500 cases made.” *#63 2016 Wine Spectator Top 100* (90 pts)
