About
Agricole Alberto Longo

The Estate of Alberto Longo is located in northern Puglia, outside of the town Lucera, where the Longo family has been farming in the region for over three generations. Having worked the land with his family as a young boy and adolescent, Alberto left the region for his studies and professional career, only to return to match the love for his land with his passion for wine. His mission is to realize a project able to enhance the value of his native territory, Daunia.

Introducing Agricole Alberto Longo

Alberto Longo's desire to realize the potential of his native vineyards led him to the trusted hand of his good friend and father of Super Tuscan wines, Giacomo Tachis (the man behind such legendary labels such as Sassicaia, Tignanello and Solaia). Tachis was then in his late 60's and had stopped bringing on new projects. He recommended his star protege, Dott.ssa Graziana Grassini, to head the project. Using her experience and tutelage under the mastery of Tachis, Grassini has come into her own. At Alberto Longo's Estate she captures the rustic yet balanced nature of the region's indigenous varietals and uniqueness of the terroir in Puglia.

Consisting of 35 hectares of vineyards, planted to indigenous varietals (Primitivo, Negroamaro, Falanghina, and Nero di Troia), this area is rich in Roman history; it dates back to the 3rd Century BC and is home to many of Southern Italy's earliest Roman dwellings and archeological sites.
