San Marzano Domodo Primitivo IGP 2019

Puglia, situated at the top of Italy’s heel, is an area synonymous with Primitivo. The hot Mediterranean climate and cooling sea breezes allow the grapes to thrive, producing wines which are intensely fruity and well structured. Known as the ‘early one’, Primitivo can be hard to wrangle and takes a winemaker with the proper knowledge of how to best vinify. Domodo’s 2019 is a great introduction to the grape and region, its filled with fruit and has a warming cinnamon finish. It also makes a great match with a variety of foods so try it at your next dinner party! Drink now and into the next few years.

Intensely fruity on the nose with raspberry, plum and currants meeting light warm spice. Primitivo wines from Puglia are renowned for being balanced, juicy and soft, and this is no exception.

It leans on the lighter side of Primitivos so is a great intro for those who are yet to try the grape or are after an approachable, go-to wine for dinner parties.

Give it a try if soft, fruity reds are your go to, especially NZ Merlot, and we have no doubt you'll be blown away at how far your money goes.
