The southern heal-shaped region of Puglia produces more wine than any other Italian region.
Primitivo is undoubtedly Puglia’s most famous native grape varietal. It is an unmistakeably unique red wine with an intense bouquet of jam and fruit.
Negroamaro is another very popular indigenous grape, which produces warm bodied spicy reds as well as excellent rosés. When Negramaro is blended with Malvasia Nera grapes, it creates the wonderful Salice Salentino.
Another exquisite red, Nero di Troia is made from the ancient native grape varietal, Uva di Troia. It is intense, fresh and with hints of red berry and violet.
Puglia also has wonderful white wines such as Verdeca and Bombino Bianco which are both made from the grape of the same name.
