Primitivos Don’t Age? Meet Fabulous Fatalone.

Back in the 90s, I used to drink much wine from Apulia, negroamaro was great but boy, I did love that primitive. I would seek them out as not only for value but for their rustic sunshine. Then in 2000 the big change with modernization came. I rejected them as just another old-world region gone to hell. Today natural wine is taking off, with a certain wild aesthetic, but very few of the old natural, traditional and sensible remain. And it’s for this reason that Fatalone in the Gioia del Colle is a treasure.
