DELUXE PRIMITIVO – SHADES OF AMARONE
Anyone whose been following trends in wine will know that Primitivo has joined the list of great values reds. And that it’s been identified as the original Zinfandel. Coming from the ‘heel’ of Italy you will naturally expect a ripe/rich wine, and in this case you get mellow/smoothness from half a dozen years of ageing. Good value escalated to deluxe. Expect some of the dried fruit and sexiness of Amarone. A delicious late-night sipper.
