REGION: Puglia, Italy
Puglia is an often criminally overlooked region of Italy, in favour of its more illustrious (and richer) paisanos to the North. It is thus a prime Jaded Palates area. As always with Italy, you also get the varietals that just aren’t grown anywhere else: Negroamaro, Primitivo (although its other name Zinfandel, is grown a lot in California) and this: Susumaniello. Hugely ﬂavourful, rich and velvety. An incredible array of ﬂavours available from such an unassuming area.
