Often, Locorotondo DOC is perceived as the best Apulian white wine and undoubtedly, it has great qualities: a pleasant, subtle and fruity taste, with an almond-like aftertaste, which makes it excellent for fish dishes.
The color is light straw green and if the wine originates from certain producers, including the local CS Cooperativa Locorotondo, its quality is truly exceptional. Unfortunately, some producers make almost tasteless versions of this glorious white wine.
A nice sparkling wine with these same grapes (Verdeca, Bimbino Bianco & Alessano) is produced in Locorotondo as Locorotondo Spumante DOC. It is gaining in popularity as more and more tourist visit Puglia each year.
Dinner with Family
With Cousins Joe, Eddie, and Tommy, and friends Tarik and Michele, at our favorite Italian Restaurant in New York, Bar Pitti (20220). Great meal. Giovanni gave us two bottles of Solaia on the house. A personal gift from Gio to cousins Joe and Eddie. Thanks Gio, quite tasty. We had a great meal, antipasti, pasta and our main courses. Good times with friends and family, sharing a meal at the table, can't be beat.
