Primo has made this estate-grown 85/15% blend its own, the first vintage in '99, believed to be the first in Aus. The savoury spicy elements of the sangiovese drive the wine, shiraz the beast of burden.
- James Halliday

  • Primo Estate are a unique family owned winery in South Australia's beautiful McLaren Vale making a unique range of wines that reflect our Italian heritage

  • Their Il Briccone (The Rogue) blends rich, generous, Aussie Shiraz (85%) and Italy’s savoury Sangiovese grape variety (15%). Primo Estate winemaker Joe Grilli aims to combine everything he loves about Australian wine with his Italian heritage to produce this very versatile wine. 

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    The fruit was crushed directly into traditional open-topped fermenters then manually pumped-over. The open-topped concrete fermenters are at the heart of the Primo Estate wine style. Joe Grilli, owner and winemaker says: ‘The soul of a red wine is released where air meets the fermenting skins’. The wine then spent 12 months in mainly older oak barrels to marry the varietal components and soften the wine.


    TASTING NOTES

    This is a full bodied red with plum, pepper and spice characters. The Sangiovese gives a burst of refreshing cherry fruit and a savoury finish. Spicy and elegant.

    Alcohol: 14.5%
