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.
