Puglia

Puglia
Southern Italy is truly the land of vines, and nowhere more so than the Salento plains in the Puglia wine region. Tucked in the heel of Italy’s boot, so to speak, the regions’ naturally warm climate is somewhat cooled by the sea winds blowing in from the Adriatic and Ionian seas, creating the ideal climate for producing hearty, satisfying reds. Sample the laid back South Italian lifestyle with a wine from one Italy’s most important wine producing regions, and the standard bearer for the south’s quality wines. The Primitivo and Negroamaro grapes fare particularly well here, producing wines that are at once dark and slightly bitter, but still supple and aromatic.

  4. Trebbiano Puglia, Rocca Estate
    Rating:
    100% of 100

    Under various different names and guises, Trebbiano is one of Europe's most extensively planted white grape varieties, found in innumerable blends and styles, but it is generally only the Italians who use it to make this kind of single-varietal dry white.

    Angelo Rocca's Trebbiano is a great example of the variety with floral notes and almond aromas following through to a dry, soft-edged palate with well balanced acidity.

    Enjoy well-chilled with creamy pasta dishes and salads or simply on its own as aperitif!

  12. Primitivo Puglia IGT, Messer del Fauno

    The Primitivo grape variety traditionally grows in Puglia (the “heel” of Italy), where it was introduced in the 18th century. The grape found its way to the United States in the mid-19th century, and became known by variations of the name “Zinfandel”. The grapes typically produce a robust red wine.

    Messer Del Fauno Primitivo is deep, ruby red in colour and has delicous aromas of ripe dark berries. These ripe dark berries flavours continue through to the palate leading to a little smoke and oak on the finish. Pair this red wine with  spicy grilled meat dishes, spicy tomato sauces and spicy soups.
