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 »

  • A Mano Primitivo Puglia IGT 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Had a glass of A-Mano at a new restaurant in Nordeast Mpls. last night. I wouldn't call it full-bodied (especially compared to big California Zins), but it's very food-friendly and well-balanced with a nice finish. At the price point it would make a great house red ($7.49 Surdyk's sale). Read More

  • A Mano Primitivo Primitivo di Manduria 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Perhaps I am only accustomed to the California version of Zinfandel. Although, I do LOVE the Layer Cake Primitvo, an Italian offering. Nothing like this one. It was very sharp and antiseptic at first sniff from the glass. The initial taste was the same, and hot with alcohol. Either this was much too young, or something went wrong with the w... Read More

  • Castello Monaci Primitivo Salento IGT Piluna 2006

    Snoothrank:

    I will not pretend to know what I am talking about by mentioning "notes" and "aromas", but the very first time I tasted this wonderful wine there was just one bottle to share between several people. It was so exceptional that I could not get it out of my mind. I had to have some more. I went from store to store looking for it in my area but w... Read More

  • Antinori Neprica Puglia IGT 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Hmm, personally, I cant smell fruit, to me it is a bit sour and alcoholic smelling, definately tastes earthy, leathery with a finish that is a little musty to me. I find it drinkable but not really savoring this one. Waited a long time to try this one, I'm disappointed. Read More

  • Càntele Salice Salentino Riserva 2002

    Snoothrank:

    I so enjoyed this wine - make sure it's the Riserva. Salice Salentino is the DOC and the wine is made from Negroamaro. A dark garnet color, nice berry fruit and long finish. We were lucky to see the 2002 on an Italian restaurant menu. We choose the pasta dish with a slightly creamy tomato sauce with ground lamb. Delicioso! Read More

  • Antinori Neprica Puglia IGT 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Good everyday table wine. More complex and earthy than I expected. There are some berry tones but I taste the earth and spice are more prominent on my palate. Maybe wouldn't age well but that means you don't have to wait! Read More
