The areas of Campania, Basilicata, Puglia, Calabria, and Sicily, as well as the distant cousin Sardegna, make up the toe, heel, and ankle of the Italian "boot." There are dozens of unique indigenous grape types, each area has its own winemaking traditions and styles, and wines are frequently less expensive than their Northern equivalents.
Puglia and Sicily produce massive amounts of wine and are competing for the title of second-largest wine-producing area in Italy. Hot environment is mirrored in the wines, which are known for being low-cost, full-bodied, warm, and fruity reds based on Primitivo and Nero d'Avola. Sicilian wines from Mount Etna are less well-known yet quite fascinating.
