Gianfranco Fino, "Es" Primitivo IGT 2015
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.
Ruby-red in color with purple reflections, this wine has aromas of red fruit, pepper, sweet spices and cardamom.
Recommended to pair with foods such as gnocchi bathed in tomato sauces, roasted lamb shank, and braised beef.
