The name Puglia is thought to be derived from the Latin `a-pluvia` or lack of rain, and this fertile region along the Adriatic coast is the heartland of the Primitivo grape variety (claimed as the origin of California`s Zinfandel variety). The Salento penninsula, with a hot maritime climate and cool night time breezes, produces concentrated red wines of relatively high alcohol and soft, rounded tannins.
The company was born as a retailer in 1928 in the Veneto region for sales of wines in casks and demi-johns to restaurants and small retailers. In the fifties the family expanded their horizons to selling wines across Central Europe and beyond. Throughout all this expansion, the Botter family retained control and the company is now run by the third generation and from their roots in Veneto they now have a portfolio of wines produced in some of Italy’s finest regions.
The Salento peninsula of the Puglia region has a climate cooled by the Adriatic and Ionian seas which allows the production of elegant white wines. This blend of Malvasia and Trebbiano is an easy drinking, well balanced wine with an attractive floral bouquet, fresh and vibrant with nuances of tropical fruits on the palate and a well balanced acidity.
This is an easy drinking wine with an attractive floral bouquet. It is typical of the fresh flavourful whites made with the benefit of modern winemaking, keeping a youthful character with nuances of tropical fruits on the palate.
Drink as an aperitif, with cold salads, artichokes and olives, and as a good match for seafood.
