Wine Tasting - New Releases of Italian Puglia Reds
August 16th 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

We will be tasting new releases of Italian Puglia Reds, for inclusion on our list. Puglia has always been the engine-room of Italian wine production. This region is hot and flat, but that is mitigated by constant sea breezes - especially from both sides of the southerly Salento peninsula - and long-established bush vines offer some resistance to drought. In truth, much of the regions's massive grape production was from high-yielding vineyards sited on the baking plains, the fruit destined for distillation or to be sold off cheaply in bulk. But many in the Puglian wine industry have realised that contributing cheap wine for distillation or to help fill the European wine lake was a flawed strategy. There is a new emphasis on quality throughout Puglia's regions, and both DOC and IGT appellations are attempting to up their game to compete with bottled wines on a world stage. Negroamaro is king here, making robust reds and fragrant roses especially in the south, whilst Primitivo is probably the most recognised grape, thanks to its close genetic twin, the Zinfandel of California. Nero di Troia is the third of the big Puglian red wine varieties, with pockets of Aglianico (much more popular in the neighbouring Campania and Basilatica provinces) as well as Montepulciano and Malvasia Nero. The format will be casual, walk around with cheese and bread. The wines featured will be:

Conti Zecca, "Donna Marzia", Negroamaro 2011
Castello Monaci, "Piluna" Primitivo Salento 2011
Vino Biologico, "Terre Nova", Salice Salentino Rosso 2012
Santa Lucia, "Vigne del Melograno", Nero d'Troia 2010
Colli dela Murgia, "Mazzaro" 2008
