Beautiful nose of anise, berries, forrest, with an awesome spicy mouthfeel with pepper and cocoa and berries. Just lovely. Can’t wait to see how this evolves over the next few years.

Notes of dark cherry, brown sugar, and rich organic earthiness. Will buy again, it's worth it.

First Primitivo I've had in many years, and the first I've actually liked. The ones I've had have been overripe, pruney, flat, and slightly sweet. By contrast, this is balanced, dry, and has nicely ripe fruit. Underlying it all is a nice minerally, gravelly earthiness and a bit of cigar box.
