Due to its naturally low yields, Primitivo requires special care in the vineyard and ripens best when bush-trained. As if this wasn't difficult enough, Botromagno plants its Primitivo at higher elevations to accentuate the acidity and finesse of the grapes.
Brilliant ruby-red in color, aromas of black cherries and baking spices complement undertones of tobacco and mint. On the palate, this substantial red is smooth and velvety with balanced acidity and a long, pleasant finish.
Pair this wine with barbecue, demi-glaces, orange-glazed duck, and slow-braised beef.
