The Primitivo from Il Cantico from the Italian wine-growing region IGT Salento in Apulia is a pure grape variety, full-bodied and juicy red wine.
This wine presents itself in the glass in an intense cherry red and unfolds a wonderfully fruity bouquet. This enchants the nose with aromas of blackberries and cherries, which are accompanied by herbaceous nuances of mint and rosemary. On the palate this Italian red wine shows itself with soft and very well integrated tannins. The round body is skillfully taken up by the fruity, spicy aroma of the nose. The finish offers a pleasant, medium length.
