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!!

Primitivo grapes ripen very early in the season giving the wine a deep, intense red color, full body and unique bouquet with scents of spices.

Another southern Italian gem. High-density planting of vines 35 to 40 years old and aging in French oak barrels has yielded a deep-colored wine with gobs of fruit. A real bargain.

Ripe and plummy, with dark, sculpted fruit and tons of it, this Primitivo is frisky as a Barbera, but fuller. Dynamite with hot sausage crumpled over pasta.

Bright red-ruby color. Spiced plum, currant and pepper on the vinous nose. Juicy and peppery in the mouth; offers the spice and cut of a particularly food-friendly Zinfandel, without any excess alcohol. A fairly light and smooth wine with juicy red berry and spice flavors and a firmly tannic finish.

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.

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.
