|Dry, Red, Full Bodied, Rich, Oak Aging, Dried Fruits
Passitivo Primitivo is produced using only the best hand-picked Primitivo grapes from low-yielding vineyards in Puglia. A portion of these grapes follow a rare wine making technique called "apassimento", whereby the grapes are dried for a brief period to concentrate their aromas and rich fruit flavours. The resulting wine is intense ruby-red in colour with a complex bouquet reminiscent of cherries, raspberries and redcurrants. The partial oak-aging adds a pleasant roasted and a spicy aroma and makes this full-bodied and supple wine, perfect with roasted red meats and mature cheeses. This has always been one of our most popular red wines.
Excellent wine. Hard to come by. First tried it while out for an Italian meal in Gosforth. Goes great with rich Italian dishes.
Great value for money.
