Puglia Wine


Puglia (a.k.a. Apulia) is located in southeast Italy, or as many describe it, the “heel” of the boot. Flanked by the Adriatic and Ionian seas, it’s a spectacularly fertile peninsula, known for growing olives, figs, almonds, wheat and of course, wine grapes. Its Meditterranean climate is hot, with long sunny days cooled off by ocean breezes. The region has been inhabited for many centuries, with wines factoring in throughout. The Greeks, Romans, Goths, Lombards, Byzantines, Turks and Venetians all occupied the province at various stages from several centuries B.C. up until 1861, when it was officially recognized as part of Italy. 
Next to wine, olive oil is its biggest industry, accounting for half of Italy’s production. Red wine has come from Puglia in profuse quantities, and garnered the region a reputation for being a terrific source of “plonk” for a long time. Producers enjoyed success for this mass production, and happily churned out oceans Read more »

  • If you want to do Nebbiolo at a price, Ghemme (Cantalupo is my go to) is safe ... certainly not like Campania, Puglia, Calabria, Basilicata.  I'm pretty sure the Northern secessionists would be willing to take Tuscany along with them, but according to the Padania movement, it's not part of Padania.For statistical purposes, Italy's census doesn...

  • Really nice Southern Italian (Puglia) white made from the fairly rare verdeca grape (which is mainly used in making vermouth). There's a bit of floral and grapefruit notes on the nose. On the tongue there's a balance of lemon pith, minerality/wet stone, a touch of white pepper, mouth watering acidity and a medium finish. I'm thinking of putting ... Read More

  • Torre Quarto Red Blend Puglia IGT Quarto Ducale 2007


    The wine is a lighter color, somewhere between a pinot noir and a syrah. The nose is very interesting, with a tart combination of cherry, fresh cut grass and spice box over hints of leather and prune, The taste is quite nice, with some rich black fruit up front, blackberry, cherry and plum that transitions nicely to some notes of cardamom and ...
