Vino 2011: Italian Wine Week

I arrived in New York this afternoon for Vino 2011: Italian Wine Week, and have been on the go ever since. As such, this will be a short blog post; more will follow tomorrow and throughout the events of the week.

This afternoon, I attended my first seminar and tasting, this one called "Well-Heeled Wines of Apulia: From Uva di Troia and Negroamaro to Primitivo," and it covered wines made in both more traditional styles as well as more modern ones. I'll be posting tasting notes on specific highlights later, but for now it will have to suffice to say that this is a region to watch in the coming years. The indigenous grape varieties have all the potential in the world, and, in the hands of the right winemakers, they can express themselves brilliantly.

And now, I'm off to the opening reception. Which, of course, means more wine. Not a bad day at all...
