A chilly winter night in Bari; found shelter and great hospitality at La Bul (www.labul.it, Via Villari 52, Bari), new and trendy restaurant in the storic center (www.labul.it). Sommeliere Francesca Mosele’s wine recommendation for a dinner based on raw and cooked fish and vegetables, prepared by her partner Antonio Scalera (former chef of Grotta Palazzese, Polignano):
Cantine Olivella: Katà Pompeiano 2010
A white wine of intense yellow colour with shades of gold; elegant and complex, with a floral, fruity tone, an idea of apricot, cantaloupe, ananas and chamomile. Warm and sapid in the mouth, it leaves pleasant memories of fruit and minerals. Goes well with all kinds of seafood, grilled fish or any kind of dish with buffalo mozzarella.
