The Delicious Wines of Puglia
Ever considered taking a trip to Puglia and trying some of the incredible wines here? Most people haven’t, simply because the region isn’t as famous for its incredible produce like other areas (such as Tuscany). What many people don’t know is that Puglia has been producing quality wines for years now – it’s just that these drinks were primarily sold locally, or in other Italian regions.
If you’re a wine connoisseur, you’re going to want to visit some of the many incredible Puglian vineyards and try some of these beverages for yourself – and even if you’re not too much of a fan, wine tasting should be on your bucket list of things to do. Here are just 3 of the Puglian wines you’re sure to love.
Salice Salentino Rosso
This red wine can be purchased for a far price – and sadly because of this, some individuals assume that it is of a lower quality. However, Salice Salentino Rosso is one of Puglia’s most delicious offerings, and is available world-wide. Made from Negroamaro grapes and several other flavors, this beverage has a distinct fruity taste and is an excellent full-bodied dry wine. There’s also a white and rosé variation for you to enjoy, too.
Castel del Monte Aglianico
Typically produced in Bari and the province of Barletta-Andria-Trani, this fine red wine can often vary from ruby red to garnet, but you’re sure to find that drinking it is always a pleasure. Famous for the full, dry, harmonious flavors, and incredible aroma, Castel del Monte Aglianico is perfect with meats, cheeses, and a variety of Puglian dishes – ideal for anyone spending a vacation here.
Primitivo di Manduria
Those who are looking to get the most from their vacations in Puglia should have a taste of Primitivo di Manduria along with a traditional Puglian meal. Mainly, this wine is made from prmitivo grapes produced in the city of Manduria; making it one of the region’s most delicious red wines. Often, this beverage is best enjoyed with dishes like orecchiette, meats, and cheeses.
