La Puglia wine tour

6 PACK DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR

$185.00

• 2 bottle of 2018 Cantina Diomede Lama di Pietra Nero di Troia IGT
• 2 bottle of 2018 Apollonio Elfo Primitivo Salento IGP
• 2 bottle of 2015 Apollonio Mani del Sud Copertino DOP

The “Puglia Wine Tour” is a mix of fantastic full-bodied red wines! Puglia is not only the land of Federico II – one of the most important Kings of Italy – but also the reign of full-bodied red wines that are so highly appreciated in Australia.

In this perfect balanced pack, well expressed by Apollonio e Diomede wineries, you will feel the power of this region, ending with a curious wine appellation called Copertino. But reality is, there are no words to describe this journey. You’ll need to taste them yourself!

I really like this wine for its harmony between the nose and palate. It is also a wine that easily goes well with different dishes of the Italian culture and its lands. A fairly simple wine that does not require many rules for consumption and yet, it manages to bring great satisfaction every single time.

Tasting

Ruby in colour with violet reflections. Red fruit aromatics of mulberry and cherry give way to a soft palate with delicate tannins. Persistent, full bodied and elegant, this Nero di Troia is perfectly balanced.

Food pairing

Great pairing with classic italian dishes like Lasagne e Pasta al Forno, but also with BBQ meats and aged cheeses.

This Primitivo expresses a lovely dark hue with a dark fruity profile, but not too ripe. The palate is intense and smooth. The perfect balance between body and acidity.

Tasting

Aromas of black cherry, black pepper and dried flowers. It has a powerful body with hints of plum and cherry, balanced with strong tannic notes and a pleasant fresh sensation. Harmonious and intense with warm mineral tones. Excellent in accompaniment to meat dishes (rabbit, veal, lamb) and medium to mature cheeses.

Food pairing

Excellent in accompaniment to red meat dishes (rabbit, veal, lamb) and medium to mature cheeses.

Fantastic wine with a bit of age. Great structure and the development of tertiary aromas add more complexity to this wine. Apollonio Copertino blend is a clear expression of the potential age-ability of this grape variety.
