Gioia del Colle

Gioia del Colle image
Gioia del Colle is a DOC of the Puglia wine region in south-eastern Italy. The red wines produced under this title are typically robust and can lean towards the tannic, being made mostly from Primitivo grapes. Due to the hot climate in Puglia most Gioia del Colle wines have a relatively high alcohol content Primitivo (widely believed to be the same as California's Zinfandel) must make up at least 60% of any blend claiming the Gioia del Colle title. It may be complemented with up to 40% Negroamaro, Sangiovese and Montepulciano, individually or as a blend, and up to 15% Malvasia Nera.
