2019 Salento Primitivo, Es, Gianfranco Fino, Puglia

60 year old bush vines give an immediate depth to this wine. There's a real iron oxide, iodine character to the nose. This is astonishingly well balanced. There's a real sea spray character, which alongside the grippy tannins brings mouth-watering freshness. Bravo: outstanding.

2019 Salento Primitivo, Es, Gianfranco Fino, Puglia
Gianfranco Fino

This benchmark eponymous Pugliese estate was only founded in 2004 by Gianfranco Fino, a man hugely respected in the region. Starting with just three hectares of vines in Manduria, the domaine has now expanded to an impressive 37 hectares. Gianfranco allows the grapes to concentrate on the vines before picking them by hand while conducting a very careful selection. The result are powerful, intense wines that also have a sense of terroir. They’re as good as Primitivo gets.
