Alberto Longo is our new favourite producer from Puglia. We are great fans of all his reds. Despite having a preference for Italian wines made from native Italian grape varieties, we couldn't resist taking this Syrah, which is unequivocally the best version we have tasted of this variety. The wine shows proper Syrah characteristics of blackberry and blackcurrants with high notes of violets and smoked meats. The palate is full and dense, with the tannins being beautifully formed and softened with a few years of bottle age. Despite being made from Syrah, the wine is no way an international styled wine, this has the South of Italy running though its DNA.
