We know Primitivo as Zinfandel in California but Primitivo has ancient roots in Puglia Italy and especially in the Manduria region where they specialize in Primitivo wines. Primitivo wines from Puglia are always packed with bold, ripe dark cherry and plum fruits but can range in styles from medium bodied and fresh to jammy and rich. Produttori di Manduria’s Lirica is a fresher, medium bodied wine that expresses the brighter tones of the ripe Primitivo fruit. It’s smooth and balanced with notes of flowers, herbs and spice to counter the juicy fruit. Pair this with grilled or braised meats and ripe cheeses.
