Zinfandel is known for making big wines, and this certainly is BIG! Big on alcohol (a whopping 16% Abv) and big on deliciousness too! Masca del Tacco are masters of Primitivo, and genetically Zinfandel and Primitivo are close relatives, so this wine makes perfect sense. From their special family collection, this wine is as intense as they come, with a bright, deep red colour. There's so much going on here - rich, jammy aromas of stewed blackberries and plum, but backed up with hints of cocoa, coffee, fragrant herbs and a backbone of acidity which makes it extremely drinkable. This just goes to show that the Old World is capable of rivalling so many New World wines on style and quality. An absolute must for lovers of Primitivo, or juicy Californian wines.
