Palamá, Verdeca Salento Bianco IGP, Puglia, Italy, 2021
Overview of the Wine
Surrounded by three seas, father and son Nini and Michele work side by side on the Salento Peninsula, the sun-drenched heel of the Italian boot. As they could achieve ripe fruit in their sleep, the family’s real artform lies in control – watching, waiting, and harvesting before grapes overripen, allowing them instead to showcase Puglia’s spectacular terroir

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Verdeca is a fascinating, ancient white varietal from Puglia, and its origins are shrouded in mystery. It is thought through clonal research to be distantly related to both Verdicchio and Rueda's Verdejo, and one sip of this beauty from Palamà, and you'll know why. Bright, taut, and surprisingly "cool climate" in its complexion, this Verdeca succeeds in part because it is handmade by one of Southern Italy's greatest makers of rosato (so Nini' Palamà understands "crystalline" wines). With notes of lime, pomelo, and mint oil, it has a gravelly under-girding that provides terrific structure. Lovely!
