And we can’t imagine a better place to start exploring than with Pillastro Primitivo. This Puglian stunner is a hit with all who taste it, boasting more than 60 honors in its award pedigree and tons of Favorite clicks from our customers.
This wine’s cachet is hardly surprising when you consider the source: Angelo Maci is a three-time Vinitaly Winemaker of the Year whose estate, Cantine due Palme, has been named Southern Italian Winery of the Year three times at the same show (the world’s largest trade wine tasting).
Primitivo, a cousin of California’s fruit-packed Zinfandel, is the godfather of southern Italian grapes. It’s dark, rich and persuasively charming – and Angelo is a master at drawing out those qualities, insisting that all Pillastro’s grapes be harvested from very old (flavor-boosting) vines.
