The Primitivo varietal is native to Puglia or Apulia in the heel of Italy and represents a very characteristic southern Italian wine style which is warm and spicey. Primitivo (in English means premature) is named so because it ripens early. In Puglia the bush vine training system is often used to protect the vines from the winds and keep the grapes protected and close to the ground. In Gioia del Colle which is a plateau on which this particular Primitivo comes from, the Fantalone family winery works organically to produce this absolutely delightful and characteristic Primitivo. A must try!
