Time to fill up the cinquecento and slip on the driving moccasins as Vino takes you on a virtual tasting trip through Italy’s south, along the A16 highway. Often referred to as the “autostrada dei due mari”, the A16 journeys almost coast-to-coast across the width of the peninsula, from the bay of Naples to the Adriatic, up over the spine of the Appenines before grinding to a halt in the town of Canosa in the province of Bari. This famous highway cuts deep through wine country, roughly following the ancient Via Traiana across highlands of limestone and volcanic ash. This scenic wine tour will make scheduled pit-stops to sample some of southern Italy’s most celebrated grape varieties, including Falanghina, Fiano, Aglianico, Primitivo and Nero di Troia.
