Winemaker's Notes

The Soleto Map of Puglia, considered to be the earliest map in Western Civilization, was drawn by ancient Greeks who crossed the Adriatic and planted some of Italy's first vineyards on region's sundrenched shores around 500 BC. Soleto Primitivo honors this ancient viticultural tradition with a contemporary interpretation of the local variety of Primitivo that offers ripe fruit, sweet spices and a long, soft finish.
