L'Archetipo - Primitivo 2020
A mind opening expression of Primitivo. This is far from the cooked, overextracted and oaked style of Primitivo. Rather, it is serious, structured, dry, yet bursting with black fruits, earthy notes, and it's incredibly balanced. A very special full bodied Southern Italian red.
Made by Valentino Dibenedetto and his four children, who together run the project L'Archetipo. Rooted in the concepts of synergistic agriculture, they are at the forefront of Italy's no-till regenerative viticulture movement. Farming vines alongside ancient grains, the aim is proper soil health, which ultimately leads to grapes and wines of insane balance and energy.
