Wine Profile

Tasting Notes Layer Cake Primitivo comes right at you with huge, inky black fruit, spice and white pepper, layered and rich in the mouth with jammy black cherries, truffles, espresso and dense, creamy texture. Always in the background are hints of the old seabeds that are the Puglia terroir.
Vineyard Notes The fruit 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.
Food Pairing Notes This is by far the most versatile wine in the Layer Cake lineup; the big power makes it work with all kinds of meats and roasts, and the soft textures and sweet ripe fruit make it one of the few red wines that works amazingly well with spicy foods.
