DOUBLE GOLD, San Francisco Chronicle; Silver, El Dorado County & CA State Fairs
We call our Primitivo “Jeunesse” which is the French word for youth. We use a whole berry fermentation (carbonic maceration in French) to make this wine, which preserves its youthful character. Our Primitivo has aromas and flavors of blackberries, violets and pepper with a touch of clove. It finishes with rich extracted black fruit flavors and a hint of chocolate.
