A romantic blend of jammy black fruit, bright red berries and chocolate with hints of cherry.
The Primitivo grape, a distant cousin to the California Zinfandel, packs a great deal of complexity into one wine. Jammy blackberry mixed with strawberry and raspberry and lots of black pepper make for a beautifully balanced medium bodied red. A lingering finish of spice and chocolate make this wine rich and bold. A noble accompaniment to roast meats, wild fowl, mature cheese as well as dark chocolate.
