Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Primitivo Torcicoda is a great value option that offers an authentic taste of Puglian winemaking. The wine boasts the Antinori family's signature touch with bold layers of spice and dark fruit that contrast each other in seamless fashion. The slightly cooler vintage offers a pretty view onto the Primitivo grape and its aromas of blackberry preserves and spicy tobacco. Smooth tannins and soft consistency make for a fitting close.

Wine SpectatorA hint of violet gives this a floral overtone, with finely meshed flavors of ripe black cherry, minerally earth, star anise and fragrant grilled herb somewhat subdued by the taut frame. Needs some air or short-term cellaring to shine. Best from 2016 through 2020. 4,000 cases imported.
