Big & muscular like a purebred horse...full of energy & authority! Really!
The Benedictine monks named the varietal "Primitivo" because of its precociousness (early maturity of the grape). Primitivo has been called many things, but is also known as the Godfather of the Zinfandel grape. This beautiful grape is deeply colored, rich, & concentrated with flavors of zesty cherry, clove, wild blackberry, raspberry & spice. FYI...this is where my handsome papa was born!
