Primitivo Il Pumo

When you are looking for an exceptional wine to pair with your meals or to enjoy on your own while relaxing at the end of the day, the Primitivo Il Pumo is one option to take a closer look at. This unique wine uses Primitivo grapes blended with other elements to create a balanced flavour with an intense aroma that you will love. A closer look at what this wine has to offer may leave you ready to make your purchase in the near future. 

About the growers

San Marzano Wines are a co-operative of over 1000 small families who come together to produce superb grapes that are used in their wines. Each family is helped to produce the finest fruit and the whole process is carefully monitored to ensure only the best grapes make it into the wines of San Marzano.

The Wine-Making Process 
This flavourful red wine is produced with grapes that are grown in the San Marzano area of Salento, Puglia. Interestingly, the area is only 100 meters above sea level in an area that has typically warm temperatures and low rainfall. The soil is characterized by being rocky and having a mixture of clay in it. Grapes are harvested in September, and the vinification process includes approximately 10 days of temperature-controlled maceration as well as a fermentation process using selective yeasts. 

The Incredible Flavour 
The Il Pumo Primitivo is a uniquely fascinating wine that is meant to be savoured, and because of this, it is equally well enjoyed on its own as when well-paired with appetizers, cheeses and meat-based meals. The Primitivo grapes give the wine a ruby red appearance with a plum side note. This is a wine that has bold hints of other fascinating flavours, including plums, cherries, vanilla and rosemary. Altogether, the flavour is appropriately balanced and bold, but it has a soft flavour that is enjoyable to drink alone. If you pair the wine, consider pairing it with savoury appetisers as well as red meats or bold cheeses for the best results. The wine is best enjoyed when served at room temperature or slightly chilled.

If you are looking for a fabulous red wine to enjoy at a dinner party you are hosting or even to enjoy sipping at home on your own while relaxing after a long day, the Primitivo Il Pumo is a fine wine that you will thoroughly enjoy. With its unique vinification process and wonderful combination of flavours, it pairs well with many of your favorite menu options.

This wine was known in the UK as Lucarelli Primitivo which caused confusion as the producers San marzano had a very established brand throughout the rest of the world. In 2013 they took the decision to change the wine range and Il Pumo was integrated into the UK market and the brand Lucarelli was no longer. The wine in the bottle is still the same but it just has a new look and logo.
