Destination Puglia

We can’t help it: we are so passionate about what we do that we have even designed a new way to share contents about the world of wine with you.

Are you familiar with our website

If not please take five minutes to browse it and discover our brand new section Magazine which now fills the space where our Blog used to be. Why? Because we will periodically explore a selection of macro topics such as food, travel, design, wellness and last but not least wine, all through the special lens of their relationship with the universe of oenological culture. 

On our first journey we have decided to take you to Puglia, wine-wise one of Italy’s best kept secrets, gaining only recently a prominent position as a truly interesting wine producing region. In Puglia you’re never far from the sea (or, even better, inland wineries!). What made even more interesting the unveiling of this sunny, dry region with a beautiful coastline still unspoiled and wild to the world of wine, is the good balance of quality and price. Value, in a word. No surprise then, if many of the best deals in Italian wine come from here.

Wine lovers keen to explore Puglia’s native grapes have lots to choose from: Aglianico, Aleatico, Negroamaro, Malvasia Nera, Primitivo and the whites Fiano, Moscato, Verdeca, Greco, with a great representation of DOC/DOCG as well as IGT. Rich, fruity wines are the result of a warm climate, with cool Mediterranean breezes cooling off the vineyards’ temperature, and fertile soil, already home to a half of the Italian olive oil production. Primitivo is the hero grape in central Puglia. In case you travel there make sure to take some extra time and make an excursion to Southern Puglia: don’t miss the amazing Baroque city of Lecce!

Back to Primitivo, the region sovereign, it’s like a luscious plate of ripe, Summer fruits: figs, blueberries, raspberries… Its early ripening grants the grapes lots of sugar, which keep the flavor full and round. Sounds like a grape you’ve heard of before? Primitivo is the same variety of California’s Zinfandel!

At Alma Wines we have quite recently welcomed a bright new star, our Berselli & Solferino Signature Collection Primitivo, which gathers all the aromas of this special sunkissed peninsula - you know Italy looks like a boot, right? Puglia is its heel - and fully release them to the palate, while the eyes are filled with the ruby red of its color. A recent bestseller in Canada, our Berselli & Solferino Primitivo has already collected some enthusiastic reviews.

Check out our online Magazine and don’t forget to drop us a line or two. We’d love to hear what you think about it and, why not, how we could further develop it! Thanks in advance for finding the time to do so.
