Jancis Robinson Purple Pages: “Can Primitivo age?” by Walter Speller

After participating in our Third Historic Vertical Tasting with 8 vintages of Fatalone Riserva during “Radici del Sud 2013”, Walter Speller offers an enthusiastic, detailed and honest description of each of our vintages in his article “Can Primitivo age?” on the Jancis Robinson’s Purple Pages. Mr. Speller, internationally renowned wine writer, is in charge of the Italian wine reviews for Jancis Robinson’s blog. Not only does Mr. Speller share his invaluable tasting notes attesting to the fact that Fatalone Primitivo organic wines from Puglia can and do age well but he concludes that “it took the likes of Fatalone to correct that black-and-white image” of the Primitivo to the world!
