Es Salento Primitivo IGT

£78.00

75cl

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.

Gianfranco Fino

THE MAKER: Gianfranco Fino

The meticulous attention to detail runs deeply, and Gianfranco works tirelessly to improve his vineyards, his estate, and his wines. Fino hand-harvests all the grapes, taking special care to make sure that each bunch is free of mould and perfectly ripe. In the winery, he believes in using a healthy balance of new and inert oak to give the wines a hint of barrel aging without covering up any of his terroir’s expression.
