The warm and sun-kissed climate of Puglia offers the perfect ripening conditions for deeply colored, rich and concentrated Primitivo, the Italian godfather of Zinfandel. Estate grown and certified organic in the vineyards, this zesty, spicy red is full of flavor and absolutely charming in manner.
|I am a dark meat turkey eater, so I prefer a wine that has enough body and substance to pair with those big combination bites of succulent meat, rich gravy and stuffing. Pirro Varone Primitivo is deep and full-bodied. It is produced organically in the heart of Manduria so you can feel the sun baking the grapes to a slightly raisin like quality. This pairs perfectly heavy fowl and cranberry or apple prune stuffing.
