It was given this name because every growth stage for the Primitivo grape happens early, starting from flowering through to colour change. This full-bodied wine brings aromas of dark raspberry, black currant, and preserved cherry with hints of coffee and baking spice. It’s earthy, bold, and luscious character are complimented by round tannins and a smooth finish. 30 Labels included.

Originating from the same grape as California Zinfandel- Primitivo is Italy's version of this wine featuring lots of dark fruit flavours, lower acidity and medium tannins. It is called Primitivo because it is early ripening and is the first grape harvested. Primitivo thrives in Southern Italy.
Puglia is located in the south, the heel of Italy’s boot. The dry heat, balanced by cooling breezes from the surrounding seas, along with the region’s fertile soils create the perfect conditions for growing mature and fruity grapes. The region also produces half of Italy’s olive oil because of the warm and dry climate.
Dry wines like Cabernet and Pinot Grigio have no perceptible amount of sweetness to the drinker and will often be detected as having a drying character in the mouth.
The big wines that can stand on their own. Often premium wines with higher tannins, alcohol levels and oaking levels as they all factor in a bigger tasting wine.
Most red wines will have at least a medium oak level as it is an expected part of the taste of a red wine.
