Ah Primitivo; a fun and ever so approachable red wine. This particular variety is from Puglia, in the sunny southern part of Italy. It’s young and juicy, blessed with a softness not often found in red wines, meaning it’s the perfect easy going partner to antipasti or with a slice of pizza.
Making a Primitivo wine is all about hanging onto the attractive fruit character that the variety has naturally. And serving it? Well everyone knows that red wines should be served at room temperature, however on occasion, and especially on warm summer days, our Master of Wine is partial to chilling juicy reds like this down for 30minutes or so in the fridge. Faux pas? You decide.
