Puglia | White Wine



On 88,000 hectares of vineyards grow many autochthonous grape varieties, these are particularly cared for and cultivated. The most widely grown grape variety is Negroamaro. Grown almost exclusively in Puglia, Negroamaro is used for some of the region's best wines, such as Salice Salentino. However, the title for the most famous grape goes to Primitivo, whose wines, like Primitivo di Manduria, are usually high in alcohol and have a strong body. Interestingly, the Primitivo grape shares its genetic makeup with that of California's Zinfandel variety. In Puglia, white wines account for less than 20 percent of total production, but the trend is increasing. Local grape varieties such as Bombino Bianco, Bianco d'Alessano and Verdeca are found right alongside international varieties such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon, producing excellent results. Italy is the largest wine producer in the world, and this is largely thanks to Puglia, which produces more wine than any other Italian region.

Although Puglia is mainly known for powerful and velvety red wines, numerous white grape varieties also thrive in the southern Italian region. The wines made from them are fresh, characterized by moderate to low acidity and balanced flavor. Among the most famous grape varieties of Italy's south are Verdeca, Bianco d'Alessano, Bombino Bianco and Trebbiano Toscano. But also Chardonnay and Sauvignon are often grown in Puglia and achieve good results. - Gerardo [TS07/22]

"In the statistics of annual wine production, Puglia occupies the second place in Italy, with a constant predominance of reds and rosés over whites. On the other hand, the white wine sector is currently in a significant growth phase from a qualitative and quantitative point of view." - Slow Wine

"The Castel del Monte Chardonnay Preludio N. 1 is a lean and informal expression of Chardonnay from Southern Italy. This vintage feels thinner and less intense compared to recent editions of the wine. Prelude N. 1 reveals flavors of citrus, cut grass, lime and honeydew melon. There is a blast of zesty acidity on the close." - Robert Parker

'Minerally and balanced, this racy white offers flavors of Anjou pear, chalk, lemon pith and honeysuckle. Stone and spice notes show on the subtle finish." - Wine Spectator
