Tasting notes

Because they are extremely close in DNA, Primitivo has many of the same characteristics of Zinfandel. This wine thrives under the Texas sun giving it beautiful, rich pigment and lots of body. Paulo Primitivo has flavors of raisins and dark jams with a thin layer of white pepper.

Production notes

The Bonarrigo family has been making fine wines since 1800. It’s an old family tradition that the first-born son of each generation is named Paul, or Paulo, and will learn the winemaking practices of his father that have been passed down from generation to generation. Today, Messina Hof founder, Paul V. Bonarrigo with his son, Paul M. Bonarrigo, honor this family tradition by handcrafting this personal selection of grapes into rich, premium, distinctive wines—only the best can be called Paulo. Thus, this collection salutes all the fathers and sons before and from whom they’ve learned so much. Serve at 65°F.
