DESCRIPTION:

Nicknamed "twelve and a half" after the minimum alcohol content, this range of wines presents amazing value. Hailing from Puglia, the stiletto heel of Italy's boot, where the warm, dry summers and stony soils are perfect for big, juicy red wines such as this.

Primitivo is the same grape as California's Zinfandel, and this certainly has the lush, mid-palate raspberry fruit that Zin is known for. But there's also a savoury earthiness that is rarely found in California, a taste characteristic of Puglia.

Unbelievable value, and a staff favourite too!
