Why should Tuscany get all of the attention??
Southern Italy is the toe, heel, and ankle of the Italian “boot” where we find the regions Campania, Basilicata, Puglia, Calabria, and Sicily as well as the distant relative Sardegna. There are scores of fascinating indigenous grape varieties here, different winemaking traditions and styles are defining each region, and the wines are often less expensive than their Northern counterparts.
For this class, we welcome John Maggi, CT portfolio manager for Vias Imports. Vias Imports Ltd. is an importer, distributor, and above all, a company dedicated to expressing the history, sense of place, and devotion to the craft of all their producers through the art of wine. Vias strives to provide its clients with access to the most comprehensive wine portfolio possible, by offering fine wines that embody the distinctive terroir and character of each wine region they represent. What sets them apart from others is their commitment to providing a vast array of indigenous varietals found in their respective growing regions.
