Cellar for up to 6 years. No need to decant before serving.

Founded by the Pasqua brothers in Verona in 1925, this family-run wine business is now in the hands of the third generation. They now export their delicious wines all over the world, and specialise in crafting traditional local wines like Amarone della Valpolicella and Prosecco. The family also makes more modern and innovative styles such as this easy-drinking Primitivo, which is the Italian name for Zinfandel.

The fruit for this punchy red is sourced in Puglia and is harvested by hand and rapidly transported to the winery to preserve the quality. The grapes are then fermented in temperature-controlled tanks and then aged in wooden barrels for 6 months before bottling.

While Italian Primitivo can be a bit more stern and tannic than Zinfandel, this silky smooth version combines the best from both styles. Luscious and seductive cassis, blackberry and dark plum notes burst out of the glass while the first sip reveals a generous full body, velvety texture, and a bold finish with plenty of seductive fruit notes. Great paired with rich red meat dishes like barbecued ribs, a ribeye steak, or a hearty beef or game stew.
