AZIENDA AGRICOLA FELLINE

The Felline winery, which opened its doors in 1998, was established by the Perrucci family, one of Puglia's leading wine families, traditionally responsible for large quantities of cheaper wines. However, the new generation became convinced of the potential for fine red wines here, thanks to excellent soils, a near-perfect climate, and the extra control that modern technology can at last provide. Most importantly, they believed in the local grape varieties of the region - particularly Primitivo, which may or may not be California's Zinfandel, but certainly shares its characteristics of explosive berry fruit, spicy complexity, full body and great structure. The secret, as with Zinfandel, is to keep yields low through careful training and pruning, avoiding irrigation, and where possible, use of old vines. Aware of this, Cipresso and the Perruccis searched hard and then worked tirelessly to reactivate abandoned Primitivo vineyards, containing 'bush' vines ranging from 40 to over 90 years old.
The results are impressive, and have set the standards in this upcoming region. Alberello is a fresh, fruity explosion of Mediterranean flavours, while the Primitivo is aged in new oak, resulting in a classy, complex wine - international style, Italian twist. These will appeal to all lovers of smooth, full-bodied quality red wine.
