This is next level Primitivo from Fatalone, a highly respected organically focussed winery in Puglia, southern Italy. Master of WIne Jancis Robinson and wine author Hugh Johnson have featured it in their Wine Atlas. And for good reason. 
Authentic, organic, sustainable are the taglines this winery uses on its website and the wines support the philosophy. 
Primitivo is one of the most popular big reds from southern Italy but this one takes taste to a whole new level. To begin with, it's made from organically certified grapes grown on the rocky slopes of a hillside in the territory of Gioia del Colle, in the locality of Spinomarino. The elevation cools down night temperatures, allowing for a slower ripening and more balanced acidity in the grapes, which are grown on a modern espalier version of the traditional high trained Alberello Pugliese. The grapes are grown along 100% certified organic practices with no irrigation and the result is a big, full bodied dry red from Puglia - the hottest wine growing region on the Italian mainland. It's a stunning wine with power and elegance.
