Vigneti Reale Primitivo Rudiae Salento 2018
Other Reds | Italy
The Reale brothers are the stalwarts behind this fun Puglia red wine, made from the region’s historic grape, primitivo. Damiano manages the grapes, Amadeo sells the wines.
A genetic twin of the zinfandel grape that formed the backbone of California’s wine industry for over a century, this primitivo is all about drink-me-up, instant gratification with zero pretension and no patience required. Loads of red plums, strawberries and red cherries accented with peppery spice make this your go-to wine for pizza, pasta, chili and so much more. Don’t think too hard on this one, just drink, laugh, smile and immediately wish you bought some more!
This is effortlessly enjoyable at any price, yet for $10, y’all better pop the trunk and fill’er up!
