Paolo Petrilli, Cacc’e Mmitte di Lucera "Motta del Lupo", Daunia, Puglia, Italy 2021
{organic} Nero di Troia, Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Bombino

Around Lucera, in Italy’s Puglian peninsula, there was a communal press, with the understanding that when you pressed your grapes, you would take (cacce) your juice and must at the end of the day, so the next farmer could pour his grapes in (mmitte). And now there’s a wine region named after this practice, because why not? It’s tradition. Paolo Petrilli’s red, based on the local Nero di Troia grape, is earthy, spicy, and rich, well-balanced with acid, with subtle dark fruit and floral notes. He also grows and jars tomatoes, and grows wheat that he turns into pasta. Because why not? It’s tradition.
Serving suggestion: Pizza w/ cherry tomatoes, burrata, olive oil, and whole basil leaves. Penne tossed w/ olive oil, sauteed garlic, broccoli rabe, and caciocavallo cheese.
