When the nights get cold and dark, there’s nothing more comforting than an Italian red.

For your Lot #15: Primitivo we enlisted the help of Laylo’s ‘man on the inside’ Ivano Emiliani, to make you a wine that’s like a warm embrace. One of the really big ones. From a friend you haven’t seen in years.

And with this brief he jumped on his motorbike to Puglia, to find the very best grapes…

The Lot #15: Primitivo doesn’t disappoint. It’s high drama. All jammy red fruit, figs and wild strawberries. Wrapped in a fresco straight from the Jesuit church of Sant'Ignazio.

This wine is the quintessential big red, with all the intense heat of the Puglian sun - the latin inscription on the box translates to “I have come to bring fire on Earth”. Look for aromas of wild strawberries, followed by figs, baked blackberries and elegant tannins.

Andrea Pozzo was a seventeenth century Jesuit brother, architect, decorator, stage designer and art theoretician. A busy guy. And the fresco that wraps your wine is his masterpiece - the nave of the Jesuit church of Sant'Ignazio.

It depicts Saint Ignatius ascending to heaven; all angels, warriors and bursting rays of light. We loved the pinky purple of the sky (a nod to the purple Primitivo grapes) and the way Andrea’s dramatic perspective creates the illusion of three dimensions on a flat surface.

On close inspection you’ll even spot 8 hidden glasses of wine. Just remember to pour yourself a nice glass of Primitivo first…

The Lot #15: Primitivo is made by Ivano Emiliani, who travels around Italy on his motorbike discovering small parcels of top-notch grapes. It’s his passion to create crowd-pleasing styles that bring people together.
When we asked him to find us some delicious Primitivo, he headed straight to Puglia - the ‘heel’ of Italy. Thanks to the region’s dry climate, Puglian grapes ripen early, resulting in wines that are weighty, luscious and full of fruit.
