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 »

    Snoothrank:

    Dark, earthy and focused on the nose with a hint of pencil lead laying over a base of sundried tomato, licorice and brunt herbal aromas. rather full in the mouth and a touch extracted with tannins that are a bit dry and forceful early on the palate followed by bright acids that help add some definition on the palate. The fruit feels a bit raw, m... Read More

  • Cantele Primitivo 2011

    Snoothrank:

    With a touch of tree bark lending this a savory edge, this opens on the nose showing off candied black fruit wrapped in spicy new oak. Smooth and almost supple in the mouth, this has lovely herbal shadings lending detail to the core of black cherry fruit on the palate and some well integrated and yet attractive wood spice notes add further nuan...

    Very perfumed on the nose with a natural ferment array of earthy, herbal, and spicy fresh leathery and heathery aromas laced with fairly grape if fresh and pure fruit.
