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.

Wine AdvocateHere's a great value wine to pair with grilled meats and Italian sausage with onions and bell pepper. The 2015 Primitivo Pilùna shows a modern and well etched bouquet with ripe fruit tones of blackberry and Morello cherry backed by spice, cinnamon and shadings of nutmeg or allspice. The oak influences have left their mark. On the palate, the wine offers soft tannins and a fruit-forward narrative. Soapy and floral notes of dried lavender add an unexpected touch.
