2016 Tormaresca Torcicoda Primitivo
The 2016 vintage of Primitivo is an intense ruby red with light purple highlights. On the nose, aromas of black cherries and wild blackberries are followed by delicate hints of vanilla and licorice. The palate is ample and supple in the beginning, then balanced by an enjoyable freshness and a fruity finish and aftertaste.
