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 »

  • Natalino del Prete Salice Salentino "Torre Nova" 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Decidedly funky on the nose and very natural smelling. This shows of an array of medicinal, barnyard and earthy aromas that are super complex but not what many wine drinkers are looking for, all savory and spicy as opposed to being fruity. Light and fresh on entry, this offers subtle fruit, rather bright and juicy for Salice Salentino, with cran... Read More

  • Luccarelli Negroamaro Puglia Igp 2012

    Snoothrank:

    The Vancouver BC wine reviewer (and former CBC disc jockey) Jürgen Gothe recently reviewed this IGP wine which presents Kirsch and treacle-like notes to the nose. The slight sense of over-ripe cherries continues on entry, but tempered by a slight acridness plus medicinal qualities. Unexpected balance and medium finish for this price. A bit syrup... Read More

  • Leone de Castris Salice Salentino Rosso Maiana 2008

    Snoothrank:

    A somewhat different Italian red blend of Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera. It starts out a little thin and metallic with a hint of licorice. There's a good bit of earthiness on the mid-palate along with dried black plums and raisin. Read More

  • Masseria Cavallo Negroamaro Puglia IGT Negroamaro Still 2009

    Snoothrank:

    I'm sorry to say I'm not a wine drinker and I don't drink wine very often, but my husband does. I will have a glass of wine when we can open a bottle of Masseria Cavalo Negroamaro 2009. I love this wine. It is so smooth. I don't know how to describe wine in a colorful and provocative manner, but it is really good!! Read More
