The grape variety Primitivo, is almost certainly named after the Italian term ?primo?, meaning first, due to the grapes early ripening. At home in the Salento region, it travelled to the USA around 150 years ago ? where it is called Zinfandel. The hand-harvested grapes are fermented under temperature-controlled conditions, to prevent the juice from getting too hot and losing its aromatic fruit flavours. Aged in American barriques for about 12 months, it has an elegant and intense aroma, with notes of ripe plum, cherry jam, tobacco leaf and cocoa, followed by notes of white pepper spice.
