Why we think this is a classy wine to drink
- The winemaker, Sabino Russo, has set a milestone for a particularly passionate wine with this old-vine Primitivo. A grape also known as Zinfandel in the USA and elsewhere.
- This fuller bodied red wine comes Puglia, the 'heel of Italy', where this grape has found its European home with the heavy warm-to-hot Mediterranean Sea influence.
- Only medium in alcohol at 13%, this deep dark red wine has strong black fruit aromas and flavours (plums, blackberries, cherries) along with vanilla tones, herbs and spice. And plenty of ripe, soft tannins.
- Drink this with pasta, lasagna, grilled meats (lamb, beef, venison), and spicy or soft cheeses.

About The Winery
Since 1903, the Castellani family has been producing delicate estate wines from Tuscany. The Castellani family now controls more than 1,000 hectares of land in the Chianti, Chianti Classico and Maremma areas. Their love for Italy and its wines help the family access hundreds of wines from the surrounding Italian wine regions every year. On the basis of strict selection criteria, wines are selected, which, in addition to strong, typical grape characteristics also offer very good value.
The Collezione di Famiglia range wines are made from grapes from the oldest vines from different vineyards in the Abruzzo region. Older vines with their deep roots in the soil, diminishing vigour and lower yields create more intensity and quality in the grapes. Vineyards that are this old are very durable, and these are lovingly cared for with a lot of patience: a sign of pure quality which the San Luigi house guarantees.
