Pilùna means "pot made of clay" in Greek, and it's an homage to the traditional container in which the farmers would store water. The clay is a symbol for a land that breathes.
The wine has broad, ripe black fruit and spice aromas, with notes of pepper, toasty vanilla and Mediterranean scrub. On the palate, the wine has a robust, concentrated character, a firm structure, and small black fruit and licorice notes on the aftertaste.
"The 2006 Primitivo Piluna is a wine of uncommon harmony. This vibrant, pure red shimmers on the palate with layers of dark cherries, sweet herbs, licorice and tobacco. It offers outstanding length and terrific balance. Readers who haven't discovered Primitivo owe it to themselves to do so. This is a great starting point. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011."
This was my first primitivo and I thought it was very interesting and fun.
