- 100% pure Old Vine Primitivo from Salento, the “heel of the boot” of Italy, specifically the area of Manduria
- Layered and rich in the mouth with jammy black cherries, truffles and espresso
- Dense, creamy texture
- Hints of earth and minerals from the ancient sea beds that are the Puglia terroir
The fruit for Layer Cake Primitivo comes from head-trained old vines and is harvested in early September. This is 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. We’re talking ancient, gnarled baskets hugging the ground and rocks around them, ancient chariots buried underneath, lost civilization stuff.
