Sasseo, Primitivo, Altemura, 2016

 Primitivo, also known as Zinfandel is all about juicy fruit. Bursting with the stuff, this remains medium bodied and not overly cloying. The Sasseo is good fun, it's packed with flavour and goes fantastically with grilled meats, smoked duck and cherries would be excellent.
