Alberto Longo is our new favourite producer from Puglia. This region is largely dominated by two black varieties: Primitivo and Negroamaro. However, in this part of Puglia, in the north, around the town of Lucera, it is other varieties that dominate. Here you can find Aglianico, Montepulciano, even Sangiovese. This wine is made totally from Nero di Troia, one of Puglia's noble black varieties, sometimes known as Uva di Troia. It's a variety with distinctive floral aromas, not as powerful as it's cousins from the southern part of the peninsula, with notes of black fruits, dried herbs and incense. This is a distinctive wine with a huge personality and is a great intro to the fantastic range of wines made by Alberto.
