About the Wine
Produced by La Bollina Winery.This wine comes from Puglia in Italy, a region located in the southern peninsula of the country, bordering the Adriatic Sea to the east, the Ionian Sea to the southeast, and the Strait of Otranto and Gulf of Taranto to the south. This is a very fertile region, known for the cultivation of olives, figs, almonds, wheat, and of course grapevines.
Puglia is an important wine region in the world with dozens of DOC. The wines were once known as “inexpensive bulk wines” because they were more focused on quantity over quality. Much has changed in Puglia over the last two decades and wines from the “heel of the boot” now represent very high quality and some of the best values in the world, with a particular focus on the indigenous varietals like Primitivo, Uva di Troia, Malvasia Nera, and Negroamaro.
Nowadays, the wine from this region is considered of high quality at an affordable price, loved by the most demanding palates.
