The Wines of Puglia

Wines of PugliaPuglia’s changed….going outside its co-op comfort zone to become one of the South’s most striking viticultural outposts. While it continues to develop and realize its inherent potential beyond a prodigious turnout, it is currently thriving in the high-quality value genre—maintaining impressive numbers while doing so, given fairly moderate production costs. Italy’s heel is getting ever higher, stepping out to claim (some stomping) ground among the well-heeled further up the Boot.

The generous number of Puglian DOCs ostensibly conflicts with the region’s rather limited output of classified wine. Yet, viewed from another perspective, these designations portend and accommodate future productions. As Puglia’s heightened values are mainly projected through its red wine production, many will likely be represented by red, yet (some whites have begun to assert their colors as well) the whites may begin to assert their colors as well.
