Our vineyard in Fiddletown produced the grapes for this Primitivo.  The grapes are grown in the traditional head-trained manner requiring careful hand pruning, tending, and harvesting.  A complex, fruit-forward wine that pairs exquisitely with southern Italian food. 

From the Wine Enthusiast Magazine: "Floral aromas like rose and lilac give this lush and fruity wine a unique character. It has very ripe, exotic fruit flavors that resemble blueberries, macerated cherries and boysenberries. Subtle oak nuances form a lightly spicy background, while firm tannins add grip to complete a nicely balanced and high-intensity package."
