The Shenandoah Valley growing region, located about ninety minutes southeast of Sacramento, is graced with hot days and temperate nights, ideal for a strong red grape like Primitivo. For those unfamiliar with the Southern Italy native grape, Primitivo is very similar in body and style to a California Zinfandel. The 2012 C. G. Di Arie Primitivo comes from a small two-acre block from the estate vineyard and has a beautiful bouquet of dark fruits with a complementing palate of blackberry and black cherry flavors. This estate wine has a strong yet elegant impact with good structure and complexity. [+]
