WINE CLUB November 2023 | 2022 American Primitivo

Bet you’ve been waiting for this one; the Primitivo is back on our wine list! For the past several years we’ve been releasing this wine as our November wine of the month due to its intensely jammy flavors that pair well with holiday dishes. This is one of our most requested wines and clearly a fan favorite!

This vintage of Primitivo is very fruit forward as usual, but is a bit brighter which gives this wine a freshness not seen in years past. Aromas of raspberry jam and warm, woody spices welcome you into bright cranberry flavors on the palate. As this wine rolls across your tongue, you’ll notice hints of ripe persimmon and a perfectly smooth finish. 

What is Primitivo?
Primitivo is essentially the same grape as Zinfandel (thank the Italians for calling it Primitivo). At Balistreri Vineyards we produce both Primitivo and Zinfandel wines, naming the wine after what the grower named their grapes.
 
What to Pair with this 2022 Primitivo
This Primitivo is a wonderful accompaniment to any holiday dinner – especially turkey dinner with all the fixings!
