Dear Gill,

Third Saturday Wine Tasting

Saturday 30th May 9:30am-5pm

Puglia and Campania

I'll be here on Saturday with a corkscrew and will open (free tasting) the:
Di Marzo. Palazzo Fiano di Avellino DOCG 2015
Paolo Petrilli. 'Motta Del Lupo' 2015
Sampietrana. Vigna La Cupa Salice Salentino Riserva 2012
Masserie Di Ugento. Negroamaro 2010

Fiano has come from nowhere to being the darling of Italian white varieties.  However, it performs best at altitude on volcanic soils (which is di Marzo’s passport) so the best stuff will never challenge Pinot Grigio’s dominance, which is good.  The Motta del Lupo is a mini-revelation from Paolo, light, fresh, vegan, everything Puglian wine is not renowned for.  The Salice Salentino is marvellously typical, broad and rich.  Lastly, the last case or two of 2010 Negro Amaro needs a home, it is old and rather charming, like all us folk at B&B.
