Tenute Rubino Primitivo 2018 750ML



The Bottle: Primitivo is believed to be the grandfather of California's own Zinfandel. An Italian grape originating in the southern region of Puglia, it makes jammy and spicy wines with a varying range of bodies.

The Producer: The vines of this Primitivo grow in sandy soil along the Adriatic shore, forcing the roots down deep to gather essential nutrients. The result is a low acid wine with less residual sugar than a typical Primitivo.

The Why:Deep ruby in color, this juicy red has hints of blackberry and plum on the nose. The palate explodes with ripe cherry and dried berries with supple tannins and a luscious mouthfeel.
