Ponte Lungo are the genius winemakers behind our best-selling wine, Curioso - and with this, the delicious 2016 Armano Rosso, they've hit the bullseye again!

Marrying quality with value in a way few others can, they have used Primitivo grapes grown on ancient vines in the hot, windswept land of southern Italy's Puglia region,to make this opulent, rich wine.

With power, velvet softness and great concentration but, above all, sweet ripe fruit - the Armano Rosso 2016 is a wine that is all about pure drinking pleasure.

A stupendous wine for just £11.95, Armano Rosso has picked up a huge 98 points from Italian wine guru, Luca Maroni.

Imported directly from Italy solely for Vivino users, we can only offer limited amounts. Don't miss it!

About the wine

This outstanding Primitivo is pure pleasure - full of ripe cherry, blackberry, currant and raisin fruit, as well as spices like vanilla, licorice and cinnamon. The palate shows off more sweet, juicy ripe fruit with superb concentration and a satin-smooth texture. Long and spicy on the finsh, this is classic old vine Primitivo - but with the extra depth that comes from using the Appassimento process.

A wine made for drinking with robust food, the Armano will hold up to pretty much anything you throw at it - but it'll be at its best with chargrilled meats

This hot, windy area of Southern Italy features many small, ancient vineyards planted with Primitivo aka Zinfandel. Ponte Lungo seek out these old vines for the deeply concentrated juice that they provide.

The grapes that go into this lovely wine are subject to the Appassimento process (as used for Amarone) that further concentrates the juice and adds richness and depth to the finished product.

About the vineyard

Ponte Lungo has many areas with old vineyards of typical Puglian grape varieties such as Primitivo, Negroamaro and Nero di Troia.

The climate is typically Mediterranean with warm, dry summers and cool winters - ideal for red grape varieties. The small wine plots can be found among oak forests and olive groves, orchards and almonds. In this almost perfect environment, the old vines provide excellent quality grapes.

"South Italian Amarone clone made with dried primitive grapes offering a delicate nose. Sweet, full of fruit and notes of Amaretto and cherry liqueur in the long aftertaste... Awesome bargain for the price."

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:

  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.

Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.

If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.

You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.

Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.
