View all characteristics Discover more about this wine

Discover the exclusive Gianfranco Es, an icon among Primitivo wines, from a carefully managed micro-production of only 7,000 bottles per year. This is a result of extremely low yields with an average of only 200 grams of grapes per vine being harvested from a 50 year old vineyard. Rigorous pruning techniques ensure that only a few bunches remain per vine, ensuring that each grape benefits from the maximum nutrition that the old roots draw from the deep, nutrient-dense soil. The biodynamic principles used during cultivation emphasize the commitment to sustainability and quality.

In the winery, the carefully selected grapes undergo a soft pressing, followed by a fermentation and maceration process in 600 liter oak barrels at a temperature between 23-25°C. After initial processing, the wine is aged for approximately 10 months in new French oak, adding additional complexity and structure. The wine is bottled without the use of fining agents and without filtering, and then aged in the bottle for a minimum of 6 months before release.

The Gianfranco Es presents a deep concentration of flavors with an incredibly fresh acid structure that is perfectly balanced. This makes it not only the best high-end Primitivo on the market, but also a wine with unprecedented depth and complexity that is highly appreciated by connoisseurs and critics. Every aspect of this wine, from the vineyard to the glass, testifies to the art of winemaking and the passion for quality that characterizes Gianfranco Fino. This is a must-have for collectors and a true experience for every lover of exceptional Italian wines.
