Description

Founded in 1954... the jewel in the crown of Masso Antico is their “Alberello” trained old Primitivo vines situated in Puglia on the coast where the cooling sea breezes perfectly moderate the very hot days yielding grapes with abundant flavour, ripeness and fresh acidity. This 2020 Masso Antico Primitivo is a bold and rich red with excellent freshness on the powerful finish. Italian wine critic Luca Maroni was clearly impressed bestowing a massive 99/100... it is an impressive red and the value is extraordinary... very hard to replicate anywhere in the world. Primitivo (known as Zinfandel in the USA) captures the essence of Puglia with its juicy fruit perfectly balanced by chewy tannins and fresh acidity, making it the ideal partner to pizza or pasta... but equally at home with most meats. Its so drinkable you’ll want to keep a couple of glasses to savour after dinner. It can age for 10+ years... but its incredibly appealing as a young red and is remarkably priced given its quality.
