Very rustic. Primitivo is Italy’s Zin and like it's counterpart, this is a good wine to open when having a BBQ. Pairs perfectly with grilled burgers, hickory smoked ribs or my favourite, grilled Italian sausages.

Red cherry, tobacco, spices dominate the nose and palate. Medium body, nice balance and best of all, very affordable.
