2020 Perrini Salento

Article number: P-5066
Availability: In stock (10)

Mila and Vito Perrini were early converts to organic viticulture in Puglia, a region which produces a huge amount of wine and where farmers are rewarded more for high yields than quality of their grapes. The siblings made the switch to organic in 1993, began estate-bottling instead of selling their grapes, built an underground cellar, and have been modestly making their subtle, natural wines in a region better known for a bigger, often heavy-handed style of wine. In the glass, you can feel the ripeness potential from the hot and dry Salento summer and appreciate the restraint required to produce a gracefully balanced, pleasurable wine. This was lovely alongside an easy weeknight dinner of Italian sausage and rigatoni, with wilted spinach and spicy Calabrian peppers.
