The cultivation of Primitivo in Puglia may come from the Phoenician or from Greek colonization. Whatever the origin, this ancient vine exists in this area for a long time, since the late eighteenth century. The vinification of Primitivo grapes achieves a notorious and complex wine, excellent with all varieties of dishes. Thanks also to the aging wine-making techniques, this wine has been enhanced recently.
The blending of these two grapes creates an enjoyable, everyday drinking wine that offers intense aromas of both citrus and tropical fruit flavours.
Catarratto is an Italian white wine grape planted primarily in Sicily, covering around a third of the island\'s vineyards. Overproduction in the 90s has led to vast quantities of this grape being distilled, or used in blends for bulk, table wines. Catarratto was historically favoured for providing quantity for Marsala wine production. Since early 2000, the wine renaissance in southern Italy, based on superior vineyard management and cellar practices, is now beginning to show promising results for this grape, though quality Catarratto wines still account for a slim minority of the total production. With greater understanding, though, the potential exists to make some fine wines here in the future. Catarratto can make full bodied wines with lemon notes and intense floral notes.
