Wine Description

(2005 Vintage) "The 2005 Primitivo is another engaging wine with plenty of sweet, ripe fruit perfect for drinking over the next year or two. It spent 6 months in used oak barrels. It, too, is an outstanding value. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010." - Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate

    Well rounded, somewhat fruity. minerality cuts the lushness somewhat but a good drinker
