These Primitive wines are just outstanding. The P&V crew tore open the boxes on arrival and devoured the just-off-the-ute wines immediately. They’re honest wines, full of charisma, have a wild streak but also a good sense of the variety, excellent texture, bright acidity and generally work a charm. They punch above their weight for complexity too. They come typically from small, single vineyards and are worked to exalt the variety/ies at hand. This sangiovese is brilliant – medium weight, hewn with fine, puckering tannin, lively with cranberry-like acidity and puckering dryness, fragrant with strawberry and dried herbs. A savoury red, pitch perfect, insanely delicious. No wonder it didn’t last long on the shelves. Thankfully we squared this stash away for you.
