Wine EnthusiastTones of cherry and slightly charred herbs carry the nose and palate. This is dense at first but turns brighter on the midpalate after a resurgence of acidity, with dense, dark cherry transitioning to lighter strawberry.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Primitivo 12 e Mezzo is a great value proposition with a few creative twists. The wine is aged in American oak for up to six months and the sweet overtones of those spice and smokey aromas are well suited to the fleshy richness of the grape. The trouble-free 2015 vintage has shaped a wine that is balanced, dark and loaded with sweet berry flavors. You really can't ask for more at this affordable price.
