From: Puglia, Italy
The Filippo Cassano 'Calx' Primitivo is a ridiculously crushable super light primitivo coming from the southern Italian region of Puglia. This wine is a part of a wonderful project by one of our favorite importers, PortoVino, called FUSO, which aims to bring organic, small production, daily drinking Italian wines to the US.
Fun fact, Primitivo and Zinfandel are genetic twins, clones of an ancient Croatian varietal. But the Italian rendition couldn't be more different from what we see coming out of California. Think of Primitivo as the light-hearted, easy-going sister to Zinfandel's broody potency (definitely was a goth in high school). Light enough to enjoy with a slight chill, equally as delicious at room temp.
Tasting Notes: Purple fruit, violets, crunchy cranberry, just-right tannins. Drink with a slight chill.
Pairing: anything off the grill, especially BBQ! meatballs in spicy tomato sauce, roasted beet gnocchi, charcuterie boards, falafel wrap w/tahini dressing
