Italy’s Puglia region has become a treasure trove of delicious, affordable reds made from local grapes, like this three-variety blend.
What You Need To Know
Puglia is having a moment: Food-obsessed travelers are flocking to this hardscrabble southern Italian region (the heel of the Italian “boot”) to sample its rich olive oils, rustic cuisine and increasingly polished wines. This typical red blend comes from Torre Quarto, a grand estate winery built by the French dukes of La Rochefoucauld in 1847 under the name Quarto Ducale. Since 1931, it has been owned by the Cirillo Farrusi family. They’ve based this rustic red on Puglia’s native Uva di Troia grape, which gives it muscular tannins. Sangiovese adds juiciness and Primitivo (a.k.a. Zinfandel) contributes lush fruit flavors.
