100% Primitivo (aka Zinfandel) sourced from Puglia.
Primitivo is widely recognised as the European version of the grape known in California as Zinfandel (although debate continues to rage within wine circles as to whether they are in fact one and the same). The name Primitivo stems from the Italian word ‘primo’, meaning ‘first’, as it has the tendency to ripen before all other varietals. Wines tend to be juicy and robust, with flavours of blackberries and violets, and ahigh alcohol content
Ruby red in colour and vibrant and juicy on the palate with hints of baked fruits and tobacco.
Artigiano is an exciting brand of artisan wines, made and imported by McLaren Vale’s Aramis Vineyards. Each wine is produced in consultation with Aramis’s own winemakers, with the sole aim of capturing the essence of classic Italian wine styles, using local varietals made in the traditional styles. Some are well-known and loved, such as our Veneto Pinot Grigio, while others may be a little left of centre (Sicilian Grillo, anyone?), but each of the wines shares two common features – vibrant, expressive flavours, and outstanding value for money.
