Tasting notes

Because they are extremely close in DNA, Primitivo has many of the same characteristics of Zinfandel. Paulo Primitivo has aromas of dill with intense flavors of ripe berries and a touch of 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.
