I’ve always liked the Primitivo grape, ripe cherries on the nose with hints of plums and spices, and flecks of dark chocolate. Leading to dried fruits and a slight tang of damson spice on the palate. A wine that holds its own with a rich heavy cheeseboard or one of our HonkyTonk full platters, this wine can take most food types.
Passitivo Primitivo is produced using only the best hand-picked Primitivo grapes from low-yielding vineyards in Puglia. A portion of these grapes follow a rare wine making technique called “apassimento”, whereby the grapes are dried for a brief period to concentrate their aromas and rich fruit flavours. The resulting wine is intense ruby-red in colour with a complex bouquet reminiscent of cherries, raspberries and redcurrants.
