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

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!!

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

An amazing bargain at $11, this is dense, rich, powerful stuff, its tannins stretching through the spicy, mineral-laden red fruit like runner's muscles, long and strong. Drink it now with bacon-wrapped pork loin, but make sure to stash a few bottles in the cellar, too: this should hold well for at least another five years.

Excellent Southern Italian Primitivo. The sweet nose bursts with freshness, plums, berries and dry earth. It's neither heavy nor lean, with ripe plum, watermelon and chocolate flavors. Undoubtedly superb with pasta or pizza.

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: 2008-2010.

The 2006 Primitivo is a dense, dark beauty loaded with dark fruit, tar and flowers. This generous, inviting red is best enjoyed over the next year or two. It is a terrific value.

A chunky, plummy red from Apulia in Southern Italy. Great for everyday drinking.
