Messina Hof Primitivio is a full-bodied red wine with jammy dark fruit flavors that pirouette on the palate. Barrel-aging in oak brings out rustic cedar aromas with hints of espresso. A perfectly balanced wine that complements steak or Italian dishes with thick, red sauces.
"Barrique Ballerina" by Amanda Dominguez graces the bottle; winning artwork from Messina Hof's 2015 Texas Artist Label Competition. 2017 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition: Silver Medal; 2017 Rodeo Uncorked! International Wine Competition at Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo: Silver Medal and Texas Reserve Champion
