Primitivo, Terre Di Montelusa
Primitivo, Terre Di Montelusa is a dark, ruby-red with violet highlights. Intense and fragrant bouquet with a rich variety of sensations. It is medium bodied, ripe, with a touch of spice and soft velvety texture. A superbly harmonic and velvety taste to match the texture.
The vineyards are based in IGT Salento where the grapes can achieve early and full ripeness. Made from Primitivo, a sister grape to Zinfandel made popular by the abundance of powerful Californian red wines. The warm climate of Southern Italy allows grapes to mature early allowing the production of this superb fruity wine.
This wine is superb value for money and a must-have to add sunshine to any wine list.

As with all wines on this website, this wine has been made without animal products. This is not the case with so many wines that are commonly on sale in the UK. Far too many wines have animal products used as a so-called production aid; they will often have a large array of chemical additives as well. Have a look at our page on additives allowed in wines. Many vegan wines are also organic or better still bio-dynamically grown. The care taken in growing the grapes and making the wine comes through in the taste of the final product. This is a vegan wine.
