Poggio Anima Lilith is 100% Primitvo from Puglia, known as the 'heel' of Itlay. The vines are 27 years old and grown on solis of rocky volcanic origin with limestone, red sands and red clay. 9 months in 10% new French barrique.


Poggio Anima is a new label for Vino Fino, but based on the quality to price ratio of these wine, we think they may become a go to for many of our customers wishing to experience some tasty Italian wines. Offering plenty of drinkability, in a way that only the Italians seem to manage, these wines offer something different to have with your next hearty meal, be it pizza, pasta or anything else the Italians seem to have mastered! And whilst you're enjoying the meal be sure to check out the labels, these wines attract as much attention for what's on the label as what's in the bottle.


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"According to Hebrew texts, 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.

This is the six vintage that the Primitivo hails from a vineyard in the Puglian heel dividing the Adriatic & Ionian seas. The vineyard is located in San Pietro in the province of Taranto toward the top of the inner portion of the Puglian heel. Here the proximity to the sea is everything with the winds acting as an air conditioner maintaining cooler afternoon highs than areas to the north. The area is primarily planted to Negroamaro but because of the extremely poor fertility in the soil select rows of Primitivo ripen well here, though yields are quite small. 

Delicious and straightforward, this vibrant wine conveys aromas of wild berry and a whiff of clove. The savoury, easy-drinking palate doles out juicy black cherry, crushed raspberry and a hint of black pepper alongside supple tannins. This is simply delicious and conveys images of California Zinfandel."


91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"It’s attractively fruited on the nose showing Black Doris plum, sweet raspberry, vanilla and subtle spice notes. The palate displays beautifully rounded mouthfeel and juicy fruit intensity, finishing smooth and lingering. At its best: now to 2022."

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.
