Drink now through to 2022. No need to decant before serving.

Owners Lisa and Gaetano have been producing wine from ancient bush vines in southern Puglia since 2001 and now have a total of 5 hectares of exquisite old plants. The couple farm their vineyards organically and biodynamically to produce the best grapes possible which in turn allow them to make sensational wines.

This stunning Primitivo offers a fascinating taste of both young Primitivo and ancient bush vine Primitivo thanks to the blend of grapes from two different sites. One site boasts vines with an average age of 40 years which produce intensely concentrated, rich grapes, while the other was planted in 2005 and contributes a lighter, fresher touch to the blend. Both sites are planted on Puglia’s characterful terra rossa or “red soils” over a base of limestone and sit just 3 kilometres from the sea which helps to moderate the intense southern Italian summers.

Intense fruit aromas immediately captivate the senses with crushed blackberries and dark cherries seasoned with hints of dried Mediterranean herbs. The first sip reveals a full body balanced by a touch of freshness and plenty of jammy fruit flavours along with licorice and dark chocolate. The bold flavour profile makes this an excellent partner for a prime steak or a generous plate of rigatoni with beef ragu.
