Primitivo Salento IGT, Rivera 2015

Rivera


Being a very big fan of big reds, especially oak aged Zinfandel. So we picked this up not expecting much as its aged in concrete vats, we were shocked at the quality of this, although not full bodied as an oak aged. It's a lovely wine and I think a bargain at this price. So had to stock it. 

Rivera wants to interpret this variety with a fresh and flowing style with a modern winemaking that enhances the intense aromas of jammy black fruit of this variety.
