This is Primitivo, but not as we know it. From a plot of vines sat on a carst plateau 450 metres above sea level, the fruit benefits from the cool ocean breezes and more moderate than usual nighttime temperatures. The result is a wine with acidity and detail that is perhaps not what one expects from the grape. The fossilised limestone below lends a nice chalky minerality to the cassis-like fruit. Raised entirely in stainless steel, this is as fresh as Primitivo gets.
