Alberto Longo is our new favourite producer from Puglia. His winery is based in Lucera in Northern Puglia, but his Primitivo is grown in Manduria, in the south of the peninsula, the spiritual home for this variety. Although this variety is not Alberto's speciality, this is perhaps the best Primitivo we have tasted. What sets it apart from others is its freshness: not normally a characteristic associated with this grape variety. The wine is packed with dense cherry and bramble fruits, lifted by a floral touch, with a satisfyingly rich and dense palate. This is an absolute masterclass in winemaking.
