It is an intense ruby red color with light violet hues. On the nose, dominant notes of red fruit, black cherries, and plums merge with spicy sensations of licorice, vanilla, and tobacco. Its entry on the palate is soft and generous with good structure sustained by an elegant tannic texture.

The 2019 Primitivo Torcicoda is dark and rich in the glass. Balsamic spice, mocha and cherry sauce blossom further through the unique yet thoroughly enjoyable addition of candied citrus. This is silky-smooth and pliant, with ripe red and black berries coasting along a core of juicy acidity, as sweet tannins slowly mount toward the close. The Torcicoda finishes with incredible length, and it's spry, seeming to recall all of the opulent fruits and florals found within. There is so much pleasure to be had from this fresh and spicy Primitivo.

A harmonious red, with fine-grained tannins framing a dark mix of baked blackberry, dried fig, cocoa powder and savory notes of iron and herbed olive. Fresh and elegant on the spiced finish. Drink now through 2025.

Plenty of vanilla and spice up front on the nose of this Primitivo, which stays floral and savory, like eating a steak in a rose garden at twilight. The palate feels lush and round even if the tannins are still rigid and surrounded by notable heat-an impressive balancing act.
