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.
In a short space of time, Alberto Longo has become established as one of Puglia's best producers. His red wines abound with ripe, sun-enhanced fruit and have a purity often lacking in this part of the world and, whilst they are clearly of the South, there is none of the cumbersome over-extracted heft that proximity to the Med can sometimes bring. There is, also, an intruiging white Falanghina with the texture of a nice white Burgundy, and a bright crisp, dry and delicate rosé.
