Salento, Puglia, ItalyDalila and Emanuela Gianfreda are fifth generation winemakers at Jorche, overseeing the 31 hectares of vines surrounding their Salento family estate. This Primitivo grows in the red, iron-oxide rich sandstones throughout the property. This aged 9 months in barrels and 3 months in bottle prior to release. Soft and sun-ripened with cassis, wild plum, dark cherry, dried roses, and old wood flooding the full palate, bound by cushy tannins and finishing with savoury baking spices. This is a big, generous red, ready for your rustic stews.Tasted: 06 November 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
