Primitivo Albert Longo Puglia 2007

External Review by Morrell & Company:

The newest wine from Alberto Longo, the Primitivo is the most recognizable of Puglia's varietals. Even if you've never heard of it, you've likely met the wine as Zinfandel, proven to be its genetic equivalent. However, the cousins are not identical: The Italian often comes off more rustic and much less intense than its American counterpart. Longo's Primitivo offers great acidity with a fruitier nose, lighter body, and rounder tannic structure. This is a great summer red, perfect with meats, cheeses and pastas.
