Puglia (also known as Apulia) has produced wine since 2000 B.C. and rivals Emiglia-Romagna as Italy's largest wine-producing region. The region is divided into two main wine-growing areas: the temperate, rolling hills of the north, and the fertile, flat, and hot southern peninsula which is battered by the winds from the Adriatic and Ionian seas. Puglia contains mostly hills and plains and most of its rainfall comes during the winter months. Color: Off-gold, straw coloring Bouquet: Aromas of fresh nectarine and peach.
