The Cinquantino 50cc scooter is an Italian classic. Another classic is this Primitivo from Cantina Sampietrana. Often linked to Zinfandel, this difficult to grow grape is suited to the hot and dry Puglia climate.
This ruby red wine is full bodied and fruity. Maturation in used and new oak barrels for 6-8 months provides roundness and silkiness.
This wine will have you hopping on your Cinquantino to go get more!
