Wine Details


Layer Cake







Wine Description

The fruit for Layer Cake Primitivo (known as Zinfandel in the States) is sourced from the remarkable vineyards of Puglia, Italy. A balance of elegance and power, the wine impresses with inky black fruit, spice and white pepper, jammy black cherries, plums, truffles and espresso. Warm and rich in the mouth with a creamy texture, the ripe fruit is supported by the deep structure, making it a scrumptious pairing with rich, roasted meats.

The 2010 Layer Cake Primitivo comes right at you with huge inky black fruit, spice and white pepper; layered and rich in the mouth with jammy black cherries, truffles, espresso and dense, creamy texture. Always in the background are hints of the old sea beds that are the Puglia terroir. This is by far the most versatile wine in the Layer Cake lineup; the big power makes it work with all kinds of meats and roasts, the soft textures and sweet ripe fruit make it one of the few red wines that works amazingly well with spicy foods. Salute!
