Description

With a deep ruby color and a pronounced bouquet of black berries, mainly cassis and black currant, with notes of licorice and coconut.
This is a full-bodied and balanced red with velvety tannins and a perfect acidity; lingering finish of forest fruits and spices jam.
Primitivo grapes ripen very early, which explains its name. Interestingly, just 20 days after the harvest, Primitivo vines produce new grapes, traditionally called “second harvest”; these younger bunches are used by the winemaker to increase the freshness and acidity of these bold wines, given as a result a perfectly well-balanced red wine.
