Alberto Longo is based in Northern Puglia and is unequivocally our favourite producer in the region. In this part of Puglia you can find grape varieties different to those found further down the peninsula, the local speciality being Nero di Troia, one of the most noble black varieties of the south. Cacc' e Mmitte di Lucera is Alberto's local DOC and is always made with a splash of white wine, using the Bombino Bianco variety.
The wine is elegant and complex with dark fruit notes of black cherry and brambles with hints of dark chocolate. It has a warm, rich mouthfeel, complimented with elegant dry tannins and bright acidity. Although not quite as rich as Alberto's Primitivo, nor his Aglianico, the wine is satisfying full.
