Pietra Primitivo Susumaniello

Wine Description

Pietra beautifully blends Susumaniello, an autochthonous grape with ancient Dalmatian origins, with Primitivo, resulting in a delightful synthesis and expression of our territorial identity.

Tasting Notes

Rich ruby red color with an elegantly spicy and fruity nose of red fruit, currants, and sage. The palate is warm and velvety, with a slight astringent finish.

Food Pairings

Tomato sauces, aged cheeses, and legume-based dishes.
