Great case of full bodied fruity red wines from Puglia. This region produces huge quantities of wine, probably more than the entire production of somewhere like Australia and approximately 17% of the total wine production in Italy, the world's largest wine producing nation in terms of quantity. And people are certainly catching on to Puglian wine over here! The region is hot, fairly flat and dry which makes it ripe for mass production, however we've found some smaller artisan producers who understand their local grapes well and avoid the use of chemical fertilisers which make for amazing quality wine that offers intensity of flavour and depth but also have that all important freshness. So here we have a great box of a dozen wines from two such small producers. Francesco Mocavero wouldn't call himself a natural wine maker but he is a very good one. His 25 hectares in the Salento region outside of Lecce which he farms traditionally without chemical fertilisers, produce delicious well balanced reds which are so friendly and easy to drink that two bottles go in no time. We've included 2 bottles of their flagship Primitivo, a Salice Salentino and a Negroamaro. Then, for those evenings where you just need a bottle in front of the fire, the Puteus Riserva has an extra level of rich spice. Delicious!

Then we have the Primitivo from Fatalone based in the Goia del Colle, a small winery owned by 5th generation wine makers the Petrera family. They have always practised natural farming and the unique 'Terroir' of the region gives them wines of great substance, ageing potential and complexity. Fuller bodied than Mocavero with higher abv (15%!) and denser colours, these Primitivos are mighty beasts with dark prune and raisin fruit characters, very good for some duck or grilled veg and Pecorino cheeses.

Finally, from our fantastic new producer Paglione, we have 2 bottles of Perazzelle, Caporale and 1 bottle of Componimento. These blends make use of local grape varieties and produce warming, intense wines with a sense of something rich and rustic - the very best of traditional Italy. Based in the North of Puglia, the Paglione farm is the labour of two families who produce a range of organic, artisan olives, tomatoes and of course, grapes. We have knocked off a fair bit in this case so the wines are a bargain, we hope you enjoy the selection. Cin Cin.
