Primitivo Wine

We found 225 products for you!

Primitivo red wine is made from the Italian grape variety of the same name, native to the Puglia region. It is an ideal raw material for making inky, tannic wines. The variety ripens early and is harvested in August. Winemakers pick their grapes in time to ensure optimum acidity and fresh aroma. They contain a fair amount of anthocyanins, which gives the wine a consistent color. The success of this spirits is due to the use of cold maceration techniques which give the wine a complex aromatic bouquet with cherry and raspberry overtones. Some soil characteristics provide nuances of pepper and licorice. The drink acquires its characteristic coloration during aging in oak barrels, which also contributes to the softening of the tannins.
