Primitivo is the second cousin, once removed, of the California wine industry’s favourite son: Zinfandel! It is a hearty vine that survives the climatic extremes of the Italian south, producing robust, rustic reds with ample alcohol and sufficient charm to keep the locals happy. Grown on the dusty plains of Puglia, Fantini Primitivo has a beautiful nose with aromas of cassis, cherry, plum and violets. On the palate this hearty red is rich and ample with heaps of juicy berry fruit and spice nicely balanced with a patina of fine-grained tannins and a long, firm finish! A very quaffable everyday wine at a price that will keep the wolves from the door!
