Il Badalisc Primitivo, 2015

Il Badalisc represents one of many tales of mythical monsters and beasts that are said to inhabit Europe. These tales have been retold over many generations. Stories of creatures living in forests, mountains and hills overlooking villages they plunder in the dead of night.

How it's made

Produced from the local Primitivo variety cultivated in the Salento peninsula of the Puglia region in southern Italy. Grapes were sourced from selected vineyards between 20 to 60 years old. Hand harvested in early September. Fermentation took place between 82ºF to 86ºF (28ºC to 30ºC) with daily pumping over and ten days on contact with the skins. After malolactic fermentation the wine was bottled without oak aging.

Tasting Notes

Rich, characterful, southern red from the Manduria zone, which is the heartland of Primitivo. A warm, richly flavored red with aromas of plums, dried fruits and sweet spices. On the palate, it is generous with impressive concentration of ripe plum and black cherry fruit and hints of dried figs, all balanced by a silky-smooth mouthfeel and fresh acidity.

Food Match

The perfect partner to grilled meats, pasta dishes with meat or spicy sauces and hearty stews.
