Product information

Like most Italians, this red is full of passion, spice, style and great taste. A combination of cranberry and black cherry flavours and a twist of spice makes this mellow beauty a very satisfying drop. It's perfect with pasta with tomato sauce.

More about this product;

The boiling summer sun in Italy's deep south bring out all the sweetness and taste of blackberries, cranberries, cherries and blackcurrants in this very sugary Primitivo grape. That can lead to wines with sky-high alcohol levels but it also makes a very mellow drop, and this is a fine example. The Primitivo grape is the same as the Zinfandel, which is so popular in California wines. So, if you like a big American red, you're sure to enjoy the silkiness of this one. 
Open it an hour before drinking to let the full flavours flood through. Match it up with the sort of everyday pizza and pasta dishes that the Italian's enjoy or serve it to your favourite people with a lazy Sunday lunch. Buonissimo!
