2008 Posta Arignano San Severo Bianco Puglia (Previously $9.99)

SKU #1055432

This winery is located in the far northern portion of Puglia (the heel of Italy’s boot) near the town of Foggia, which runs a bit cooler than the lower-altitude zones of this sun-baked land. The 2007 Posta Arignano San Severo Bianco is a blend of Bombino bianco, Trebbiano and Verdeca, and it is full-bodied, fresh and just stimulates your salivary glands. Juicy, bright and the perfect accompaniment to grilled fish, pasta primavera or poolside sipping. You'll love it! (Greg St. Clair, K&L's Italian buyer)

This wine certainly over-delivers for the price. From a remote, obscure region in the mountains of the very north of Puglia (the heel of Italy's boot), this wine reminds me a bit of Semillon based whites from Bordeaux or Austraila. It has a slight beeswaxy, honeycomb, lanolin and ripe yellow apple nose, and a fat, medium plus body but with a nice streak of acidity to keep it fresh. Nice lingering finish too. Again, a lot of bang for the buck. Enjoy with lighter fare or as a "cocktail" wine on it's own. CM

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
