Tormaresca Primitivo Torcicoda 2013 750ml
Tormaresca Primitivo Torcicoda 2013 750ml
Price: $19.99
Currently Unavailable.

Brooding and powerful, this ’13 Primitivo wraps its succulent cherries and plums in spices, warm cigar wrapper, melted chocolate, violet petals and underbrush. This is a supple, elegant yet muscular wine that balances its sweet fruits with savory elements, its alcohol with vibrant acidity, and its chewy tannins with a silky, mineral-laden mouth-feel. It’s a terrific value at its under $20 price point! Deriving from old-vine Primitivo grown in Tormaresca’s San Pietro Vernotico holdings, the grapes for this wine ferment in stainless steel for about two weeks, and the wine enjoys malolactic fermentation and ten months of aging in oak barrels, resting for eight months in bottle before release.
Mille Una Bacmione 2007 750ml
Mille Una Bacmione 2007 750ml
Price: $39.99

This mono-varietal Primitivo matches its supple, chewy tannins with its sweet fruit to create a drinking experience that is the epitome of rustic elegance. Brambly fruits dance on a bed of sun-warmed earth, crushed flower petals, cocoa powder, warm spices, and Christmas cake in this intense yet lively ’07 Bacmione. Ideal to accompany roasted meats, aged cheeses and game, this Primitivo derives from vines aged sixty years or more; the wine ages in oak for six months before bottling.
Antonio Ferrari Solaria Jonica 1959 500ml
Antonio Ferrari Solaria Jonica 1959 500ml
Price: $159.00

The product of the hottest summer on record in Puglia, the skills of Piemonte-born Antonio Ferrari, and sheer luck, the ’59 Jonica lands somewhere between a Recioto and a Port, but it’s far more complex and surprising. Notes of plums, berries and cherries dance with chocolate, earth, tobacco, black walnuts, caramel, spice and licorice in this dizzyingly layered wine. Though the Jonica has about six decades of age, it remains remarkably vibrant and nervy, hanging its myriad flavors on a sturdy tannic spine and energizing its thick palate with bright acidity. Rich, luscious, concentrated and warm, this wine needs to be tasted to be believed and sipped slowly to be appreciated. A mono-varietal Primitivo grown on old vines, this wine matured in botti for a decade and refined in concrete for an additional 35 years before being bottled.
