Dear Scorpio, the caves, canyons and gorges of Basilicata, a region in the south of Italy, are a pleasing and secret habitat for a scorpion like you. For multiple millennia, humans have shown their loyalty for this place, using their bravery to dig into the surrounding hillsides to make dwellings and later to build the ancient city of Matera. Like you, they knew that what lies beneath the surface matters most, and this is why the Primitivo is your grape of choice.  Tasting Notes: “Primitivo from the Matera DOC is grown in a warmer area, not right on the sea, so it’s rich, full and not so heavy.”
