Reduced to clear -- out it goes! Absolutely superb BBQ wine at this ridiculous price now. Limited stock. A juicy and refreshing, perfectly balanced from the warm climes of Southern Italy. This is the home of the wonderful Negroamaro grape, which can produce wines a lot better than their price. Offering Mediterranean satisfaction and charm along with subtle savoury and spicy layering, this Apollonio is a no-brainer.

Overview

Grape

Negroamaro

Its Origins

Apollonio was a benchmark producer in the region in the early part of the 20th Century and continues to forge ahead today with the fourth generation of the Apollonio family at the helm. The wines of Puglia have never received as much interest in the past as they do now. Tasting Apollonio's wines shows that here at least the attention is justified. Great care is taken in the production and vinification of local grape varieties to produce wines of uniquely southern Italian character. Ageing typically takes place in barrel and then bottle for extended periods before release. Powerful and complex, the wines have flavours of ripe, dark fruits and leather, attractive weight, richness and balanced tannin. They brilliantly represent the terroir and climate of Puglia while being beautifully elegant in their structure and style. In 2012, Apollonio's Divoto Copertino Rosso 2004 won the Trophy at the IWC Awards. Traditional bush vine cultivation is the norm for Apollonio which naturally limits yield, ensuring the best quality grapes go into the Apollonio wines.

What The Critics Say

Winemaker notes

"A warm, round wine with a pleasant freshness coming through. Vinous, intense aromas with rich, fruity notes. A floral note enhances its freshness on the palate, with pleasant vegetal undertones and a good persistence."
