At just £12.45 per bottle and with a 98 point score from Italian wine guru Luca Maroni -  -the Selenia Zinfandel 2015 is fantastic value!

Selenia Zinfandel is made from late harvested grapes grown on ancient vines in Puglia's hot, windswept hills. Rich, soft and full of stunning ripe fruit, this absolutely over-delivers for the price.

2015 was a fantastic vintage in Puglia with sunny, dry, warm weather leading to one of the earliest harvests on record. The fruit was perfectly ripe and healthy and has created wines with an extra dimension of richness.

This the best vintage yet of the Selenia Zinfandel and given how quickly our previous offers have sold out, this won't be around for long either. Make sure you don't miss out!

About the wine

Selenia is made from Zinfandel grapes from ancient vines in Puglia, Italy's boot-heel. The grapes are harvested late, resulting in a wine with concentration and rich fruit.  8 months of aging in American oak barrels gives extra texture and delicious spicy vanilla notes. This very dark wine offers a nose of  soft fruit, chocolate, vanilla and a slight mineral touch.

The taste is velvet-bodied and generous with lots of full ripe fruit, and it has not even a hint of a sharp edge. The finish is long and soft, soft, soft. The wine is suited both to be enjoyed without food or as accompaniment to dishes with beef or lamb.

Zinfandel or Primitivo?

The Californian Zinfandel and the Italian Primitivo both originated from the Croatian Crljenak grape. But where Zinfandel today has become a celebrity grape variety which sells for large amounts of money in California, Primitivo is still relegated to being a rather over-looked grape, whose wines you drink between major Italian wine experiences such as Brunello, Barolo and Amarone.

One reason for this is that the Primitivo grape is mainy grown in Italy's boot-heel, Puglia, where growers have only a fraction of the resources that most Californian winemakers splurge on fields, equipment and manpower. Puglia's best Primitivo wines are produced in and around the windy and extremely dry zone of Manduria, where the wines can achieve a phenomenal richness and depth - and, of course, they cost a fraction of their Californian counterparts.

"Dark ruby into the glass, bursting with red berries on the nose and on the palate. Quite sweet, fairly full-bodied, longish finish. Lovely." 4.5/5 Stars

"Fantastic little quaffer. Beautiful sweet fruits come out immediately with soft, round tannins following for such a young wine. Not sure how well it will age... But great right now. Currently one of my favourite wines."  4.5/5 Stars

"Totally splendid. Complex full on red fruits, quite sweet, with developing minty, lightly spiced finish" 4.5/5 Stars

 "A gorgeous wine and absolute bargain. Dark, scents of tobacco and leather. Rich and complex fruits, smooth with a long warming finish. Will be getting more..." 4.5/5 Stars

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
