The Primitivo Corkscrew has an elegantly, uniquely shaped wooden handle crafted from African Wenge (Dark Wood) and Solid Oak (Light Wood). All metal parts are fabricated in stainless steel with a mirror finish. The shield detail on the spine is engraved with the shape of a vine.
The double-hinged fulcrum of the corkscrew allows a very clean extraction of the cork, even the longer ones. This system offers a substantial mechanical advantage over old-style single-hinged corkscrews. The serrated foil cutter blade shapes perfectly to cut the bottle’s foil with ease.
In comparison to an average corkscrew, the Primitivo is about 50% larger and weighted accordingly. It is impressive to hold, leaving no doubt of its high-quality construction and durability.
Each piece is presented in an extraordinary flip-top box that includes a leather pouch hot-stamped with the message "In wine there is Truth." and a microfiber cloth to polish the metal components after each use. It is a fabulous gift.
The combination of artistic detail and presentation of this highly functioning objet d’arte is sure to impress even the most well-traveled oenophile, making the Nebbiolo an ideal gift.
***Variations in pattern and color should be expected and are inherent to the nature of the natural products used in the fabrication of these fine instruments. Every piece is unique. This is a good thing.
