Primitivo IGT

Primitivo thrives in the particularly hot and dry weather of the Salento area leading to intense wines with beautiful notes that range from dark-skinned fruits to sweet spices. It is especially recognizable for its inky color and blackberry, pepper and anise aromas. Primitivo, as well as Zinfandel, are clones of a Croatian grape called Crljenak.
