FAQs about Primitivo

What is Primitivo?

Primitivo is a southern Italian grape variety, known in other parts of the world as Zinfandel. It is a dark skinned grape that produces intense, dark rich reds.

Primitivo vs Zinfandel?

Zinfandel is most commonly associated with California where it produces rich, dark berry flavoured wines with a hint of spice. Primitivo is the Italian version, producing inky-dark wines that are less sweet than their New World counterparts.

What does Primitivo mean?

Deriving from the Latin ‘primus’, Primitivo means first born or original.

I reeeaaally liked it! With all the Proseccos I have recently drank, this is the One my taste buds liked most. It is fruity and soft to drink. Its bubbling lasts for the right amount of time without leaving me an headache! Love it ;-)

A nice company with a small but carefully considered wine list, decent prices and friendly customer service. The Prosecco and Primitivo were particular favourites. I could see those going into regular rotation!

I have tried the Rioja, Malbec and Primitivo. I would strongly reccomend all three. In my view all three are equally great, easy to drink with lovely flavour and body. I will definitely be buying more of all three wines in the future

A great - and very good value - selection of organic wines, and I like the clean, simple but informative labelling. I'll certainly come back for more, and will definitely recommend others to try the Terra Organica range!
