In stock
A rich and satisfying Primitivo (or Zinfandel as its more commonly know outside of Italy) from the classic territory of Puglia, Italy. This warm region produces a succulent style of red, with reasonable body and darkish fruit but an easy-going nature that suits anything from stews to barbeques and afternoon bites. A ripe and sunny wine from good Mediterranean vintage, this is a delicious new import to be enjoyed by anyone anytime.

Primitivo

Its Origins

During 40 years of wine making and research into the wines of Puglia, Cantina Coppi is closely linked with promotion and enhancement of this southern Italian region. The family concentrates on native vines with special characteristics, a precious heritage of resources to preserve. According to the family philosophy, making a good wine means following an unbridled passion, and every day brings a rediscovered love for their own land.

What The Critics Say

5 Stars The Wine Writer, Angie Atkinson (2015 vintage)

"Made from Primitivo taken from three vineyard locations, Serri district, Turi, and Apulia. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and rested in bottle for 10 months before release. Unlike some Primitivo’s that are all baked fruit and not much else, this wine has a lovely lifted acidity that takes it to next level delicious. Bursting with ripe blackberry, plum, blackcurrant and sweet spice, the dusty tannins and lingering fruit driven finish compel you to take another sip."

Winemaker notes

"Vivid and bright red. Dry, soft, quite fresh and tannic, fruity, full-bodied. Intense and persistent, fruity where you recognize the cherry and sour cherry flavours. Match with: bread encrusted Prague ham, meatballs with cream sauce, sausage and potatoes, venison, cold cuts and matured cheeses."
