Overall, a solid dry rose. The fruit flavor is not overpowering. It was great with salmon.

    Deep, rich purple color, a slight musty scent, pleasing to the palate w/black cherry & licorice. A good find at a bargin price

    Great wine for the price! Dry, but a hint of sweet. Great for parties!

    I like dry reds, but not so dry that it sucks the moisture out of my face (hello chianti), and the Cantele Primitivo is just the right balance for my tastebuds! Please, if anyone has a chianti to recommend, I would be willing to give it a go. $8.99 at Trader Joe's!!

    Kräftiges Rosa durch die farbintensive Negroamarotraube. Köstlich erfrischendes Bouquet mit dem Duft frisch gepflückter Waldbeeren. Am Gaumen elegante Säure, finessenreiche Fruchttextur.

    Kräftiges Strohgelb. Feine Aromatik nach Pfirsich und Aprikose mit einer Spur Vanille. Reichhaltig und kraftvoll am Gaumen, langes Finale.

    Helles Strohgelb, anhaltendes, fruchtbetontes Bouquet. Frisch und rassig im Antrunk, ausgewogen und trocken im Geschmack.

    The 2005 Primitivo is an 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: 2008ndash;2010.

    Smoky oak meets juicy cherry in this meaty primitivo. Match the chewy tannins with burgers fresh off the grill.

    Are we outside looking in, or inside looking out? the label is as mysterious as its content. DNA testing confirmed that the Primitivo grape in Italy is the same grape as the Zinfandel of California. How? No one knows. This wine is from the Salento peninsula of Apulia (the heel of Italyrsquo;s boot) and has the same relationship to Californiarsquo;s Zinfandel as Francersquo;s Syrah has to Australiarsquo;s Shiraz. It has brilliant ruby color, flavors of ;blackberry and cranberry dominated by clove, nutmeg, mace, and black pepper. As you taste the wine, the flavors and aromas dance around the palate and weave in and out of perception. Enjoy the wine, ponder the mystery, salute the differences.

    Deep inky-ruby. Sweet red cherry, plum jam and herbal aromas on the fresh nose. Ripe black cherry, blackberry jam and tobacco flavors display moderate intensity and length.
