Tasting Notes

‘Primo Rosso’ is deep ruby red in color. There are rich aromas of ripe wild berry fruit on the nose which continue on the palate. It is well-structured and well-balanced with a long finish. It is a versatile wine that pairs well with a wide variety of cuisine, especially meat-based first courses and fat-rich fish.
