The Cacc'e Mitte di Lucera is a DOC wine produced in the province of Foggia south of Gargano. This intense red wine gets its name from the Apulian dialect and literally means "remove and add". Why? Before the war, peasants would use the equipment of mill owners to make wine as quickly as possible, so they would remove the must of the previous processing (Cacc ') and then put their own grapes in (Mitte).
Est! Est!! Est!!!
The Est! Est!! Est!!! di Montefiascone is a white DOC from the upper Lazio region. It’s difficult not to notice the name of this wine with all those exclamations, and some may even find themselves ordering this with an elevated tone thanks to its punctuation. Legend has it that this wine’s name comes from its excellent and unexpected taste. The name comes from an ancient review of the wine from the 12th century which used the term Est! Est!! Est!!! instead of just one simple Est!
