Two Italian best wine from Apulia

According to historians, the vine was brought in Apulia by the Phoenicians merchants around 2000 B.C. subsequently cultivated by the Greeks who landed in this lush land and later by the Romans, who appreciated very much the wine in question, according to the poet Horace, was as good as the famous Falerno wine.In Apuglia, in the past years the wine producers have focused on quantity rather than quality, but this days many of them are very careful in creating quality wines that are becoming an excellence in the  Italian wine reality. A producer I want to talk about is Gianfranco Fino. In 2004 he began his adventure looking for a vineyard with special features like: red soil, a certain type of farming sapling (very low small trees with leaves touching the ground) Today the estate total surface amounts about 10 hectares, characterized by bush cultivation, 40 years old, in the Manduria/Salento area, few meters away from the Jonio sea.
The Mission of Gianfranco and his wife Simona is: obtain extreme quality without compromises, and the perpetual challenge to improve the vineyard and its  product. This deep passion, dedicated to the care of each single detail obtained right from the first official presentation at the “Critical Wine of  Milano” in 2005 all the critics attention.Two red wines of great value are the Primitivo and the Negroamaro, both are  produced by Ginfranco Fino. the Negroamaro is named Jo from Jonio the sea that laps the Manduria coast, moreover, Jonico is one of the synonymous of Negramaro. These wine is able to combine as only a few other important red: harmony, complexity and balance, with a very elegant result.The primitivo is named Es. Ruby red, intense, balanced, soft.  According to Sigmund Freud, es is our instinctive, wild and passionate site. Es is the expression of instincts into wine.
