Wine suggestions: Primitivo is the best known red wine from Puglia, it's little sweet and full bodied. We also make some other great wines from the Uva di Troia and Aglianico regions that are dry, full bodied and more complex than Primitivo.
It's hard to find white wine from Puglia in Canada even though we are one of the largest producers in Italy, but if you can find it, "Fiano" is one of my favourites.
