PRIMITIVO

2010 Rosso Alberto Longo

Very ripe Primitivo with bags of fruit and power, but with plenty of fresh acidity too which helps to keep it all in check and make this really very drinkable indeed. Really lovely.

Currently out of stock in our warehouse, but don't worry!

Founded by Alberto Longo, a consultant for KPMG, this thirty five hectare estate is in Lucera, Apulia, and only released their first wines onto the market in 2005. Concentrating mainly on the indigenous varietals, Nero di Troia, Negromarao and Montepulciano, the wines have rapidly gained recognition as being the best of the region. The wines are made by oenologist Graziana Grassini, a pupil of Giaccomo Tachis, and well known to us for her tremendous efforts at Fattoria di Magliano in Tuscany. Her signature of expressive fruit, allowing the 'terroir' to show through, is evident in all of these wines, and while they have the ripeness of wines from the south, they are all marked by crisp and fresh acidity.

You can visit Cantine Alberto Longo's website here for more detailed information on his vineyards, wines and wine-making process.
