LAYER CAKE PRIMITIVO 2017 750ML

The fruit comes from head-trained old vines and is harvested in early September. Truly remarkable plant material in very old vineyards, some dating to Roman times. The soils in Manduria are red, iron-rich clays with large calcareous rocks, shells and coral from ancient seabeds.

Big, inky-black fruit, spice and white pepper; layered and rich in the mouth with jammy black cherries, truffles, espresso and a dense, creamy texture. Always in the background are hints of the old sea beds that are the Puglia terroir. By far the most versatile wine in the Layer Cake lineup; the big power makes it work with all kinds of meats and roasts, the soft textures and sweet, ripe fruit make it one of the few red wines that works amazingly well with spicy foods.
