I have had it with winter. I was hoping we were done with it, but nature has other ideas. If that is so then I will recommend some nice, dark rich reds to warm the soul with the last blast of comfort food. I recently purchased an instant pot and have been trying a bunch of recipes but the one thing that has gotten my attention is Bolognese and marinara sauces. I love these in cold weather, or warm actually, and paired with these Puglian reds, I can forget about slush and icy roads. Take me away to the heel of the boot, a land of the best tomatoes and olive oil in the world. My opinion, I know, but I’m stickin’ to it!
So get out the pots and pans and make the sauce for your favorite pasta and buy these wines. Or grab the white and try with your favorite seafood dish.

Felline Primitivo Di Manduria Puglia
primitivo-di-manduria-felline-2015-accademia-dei-racemi-wlochy-291-767x1100
The Primitivo vines at Felline are the stuff of a California Zinfandel producer’s dreams. Averaging 50 years of age, these old vines grow as free-standing bushes in the iron-rich red earth with clay subsoil. These vines are actually harvested twice. The first harvest takes place in the middle of August and gives a deep, brooding wine of concentration and high alcohol levels. The second haul takes place in the middle of September and gives a lighter, more acidic wine with intense aromatic elegance. The two harvests are blended to create the final product. The wine is aged for 9 months in new French oak (Allier). This is a masculine wine with layers of elegance, a result of ripe fruit and oak presence.

Felline Pietraluna Negroamaro Puglia
