Artigiano is an exciting brand of artisan Italian wines – traditional varietals in classic styles, focusing on the wines of Southern Italy, and Sicily in particular. These have been some of our best-selling wines for a long time, and it is easy to understand why – with their vibrant, expressive flavours they are wonderful, outstanding value everyday drinkers.
This delightful wine hails from sun-kissed Puglia in the ‘heel’ of Southern Italy. Intense ruby red in colour, it is vibrant and juicy on the palate, with intriguing hints of baked fruit and tobacco. It is the perfect match for roasted red meats, full flavoured cheeses, and of course wood-fired pizzas!
Primitivo is widely recognised as the European version of the grape known in California as Zinfandel (although debate continues to rage within wine circles as to whether they are in fact one and the same). The name Primitivo stems from the Italian word ‘primo’, meaning ‘first’, as it has the tendency to ripen before all other varietals. Wines tend to be juicy and robust, with flavours of blackberries and violets, and a high alcohol content.
