Into Puglia for more food and wine
(Puglia - for now)
After enjoying a week in glorious Umbria we are now down south in Puglia - land of primitivo, aglianico, negroamaro and the rest.
We exited Umbria via the wonderful town of Norica, birthplace of St Benedict, and by a strange coincidence, of his twin sister Sta Scholastica.
More important than that Norica is home to Norciniera - assorted pig meats, hams and sausages.
We went to a stunning mountain village called Castellucia where we enjoyed a huge plate of meat and cheese washed down with the last of the Sagrantino de Montefalcino.
More later when I manage to get my own computer back in gear!
