Poggio Anima Lilith Primitivo has a bright, full red-ruby color. Spicy, sweet nose offers raspberry, spice aromas, violet and licorice. Fresh, suave and smooth on the palate, with bright flavors similar to the aromas and a delicate pepper nuance. Finishes with juiciness, bright acids, soft tannins and good length.
This wine is from Italy, Basilicata region. According to Jewish folklore, Lilith was the first wife of Adam. She was banished from the Garden of Eden when she refused to make herself subservient to Adam's sexual requests. When she was cast out of the Garden, she was made into a demon, and Adam was given a second wife, Eve, who was fashioned from his rib to ensure her obedience to her man. Where Adam was created from dust, Lilith was created from filth and sediment. Primitivo refuses to be submissive to the oenology that it is the same grape as its close relative Zinfandel. Many subscribe to this idea, though they are both mutations of Crljenak, a Croatian varietal. Primitivo always brings plenty of flesh and ripeness to the table with a solid spine of certainty and structure.
