90 points Wine Enthusiast
"A mix of tilled earth, violet, blackberry, plum and dried hibiscus carry this enticing Primitivo. The medium-bodied palate is driven by juicy dark fruit, with savory tones of earth, flowers and spice adding depth. The tannins show some grit, but it’s nothing a hearty protein can’t temper."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Due to its naturally low yields, Primitivo requires special care in the vineyard and ripens best when bush-trained. As if this wasn't difficult enough, Botromagno plants its Primitivo at higher elevations to accentuate the acidity and finesse of the grapes. Tasting Notes: Brilliant ruby-red in color, aromas of black cherries and baking spices complement undertones of tobacco and mint. On the palate, this substantial red is smooth and velvety with balanced acidity and a long, pleasant finish. Food Pairing: Pair this wine with barbecue, demi-glaces, orange-glazed duck, and slow-braised beef.
