Gianfranco Fino 'Es' Primitivo di Manduria 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"Gianfranco Fino’s goal was to find a vineyard with the perfect combination of characteristics: vine maturity, bush cultivation in red soil, good planting density, controlled vigor, and proper clonal selection. The company was born in January 2004, when they purchased a three-acre, 50 year-old vineyard in the Manduria region of Puglia. In 2006, two other small plots were saved from being uprooted and added. Today, the estate covers 37 acres, including a little plot of 40-year old Negroamaro vines near the sea. Es is named in honor of Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis. Translated from Italian, "Es" means the id, the psychological term for a component of the psyche. According to Sigmund Freud, "Es" is defined as instinct and wild passion; a passion which does not give in to rules or compromises. Es submits to one principle only: pleasure. It is the expression of primal instinct into wine. Cultivated in the maritime Agro di Manduria to utilize its unique red soils, this wine is made from 100% Primitivo. The grapes are lightly dried while still on the vine and harvested by hand at the end of August. " -Importer
