You can expect great things from this
historic family owned Pugliese estate.
Apollonio was a benchmark producer in the region in the early
part of the 20th Century and continues to forge ahead today with
the fourth generation of the Apollonio family at the helm.
The wines of Puglia have never received as much interest in the
past as they do now. Tasting Apollonio's wines shows that here at

Great care is taken in the production and vinification of local
grape varieties to produce wines of uniquely southern Italian
character. Ageing typically takes place in barrel and then bottle
for extended periods before release.
Powerful and complex, the wines have flavours of ripe, dark
fruits and leather, attractive weight, richness and balanced
tannin. They brilliantly represent the terroir and climate of
Puglia while being beautifully elegant in their structure and
In 2012, Apollonio's Divoto Copertino Rosso 2004 won the Trophy
at the IWC Awards.
