Italy – Where wine is a way of life

The Italian wine regions are extremely diverse, and this is made clear in their wines. Established varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, and Sauvignon can be found on just 15 percent of the total vine growing area. The remaining 85 percent is reserved for autochthonous, indigenous varieties. More than 2,000 different grape varieties are grown under diverse conditions and pressed with various techniques into wines that reach the top tier of the international wine market.

Apulien: Frischer Wind aus dem Süden

Kaum eine Weinregion in Italien konnte ihr Qualitätsniveau in den letzten zehn Jahren so stark steigern, wie Apulien. Noch vor wenigen Jahren waren die rund 100‘000 Hektar, auf denen hier Wein produziert wird, ein Reservoir für anspruchslose Massenweine. Vor allem der einst kantige, alkoholreiche und trotzdem oft restsüsse Primitivo hat seinen Charakter völlig geändert. Dank neuem Know How in Rebberg und Keller, zeigen die Primitivo-Weine nun jene mediterrane Opulenz und würzige Fruchtfülle, welche die Weinliebhaber im Norden ausserordentlich schätzen.

Grape varieties

Primitivo

The perfect pizza wine

Primitivo is by no means primitive. The name comes from the Latin "primativus", which means “the first to ripen”. Thus a botanist named the grapes when he discovered them in 1799 in southern Italy. Their stronghold is in Apulia, but they originally came from Croatia, where they are known as Tribidrag. The Greek word means exactly the same thing: early ripening. With its exuberant berry fruit, spice and exciting fresh acidity, the Primitivo is the perfect pizza wine. Incidentally, Californians also drink Zinfandel with their pizza. This is a synonym for an identical grape, even if there are vintners on both sides of the ocean who do not want to admit it...
