    April 28, 2020 - Southern Italy is currently flavour of the month so was on the lookout for something away from the norms. This is a grape which is used only in Puglia as far as I can find out. Red berries, plums and cherries are the flavours and while expecting some Puglian sweetness was surprised with pepper and sharp spices. Indeed both my Son and I had been speculating what grape it would most resemble and our immediate reaction was Shiraz.

    What threw us though was that lockdown having driven us to order takeaway we both ordered prawn dishes and were pleasantly surprised at how well the wine paired with both dishes.

    This is very different to my stock tempranillo, Mourvedre, Aglicanico favourites but it is a georgeous wine....nice on its own but comes int its own with food. Cannot wait to try with other fish dishes. Really worth a punt!!
