We love this organic red from the South of Italy which packs a punch at a very reasonable price. This scrumptious wine is made from a blend of Negroamaro and Montepulciano grapes. It has rich aromas of sweet spice, prunes and liquorice. Velvety and extremely concentrated, with a cherry and spice palate. A touch of chocolate and caramel on the finish. Try with the Christmas turkey, rare roast beef, or even salmon and tuna or goat’s cheese.

Negroamaro is planted primarily in southern Puglia on the eastern half of the Salento peninsula. It is the predominant variety in the DOCs for Salice Salentino, Copertino, Brindisi, Leverano, and Squinzano. It is later ripening than Primitivo, with higher acid and more evident tannins. These tannins have tended to be softened by the addition of the more perfumed and delicate Malvasia Nera to the blend. Mark Shannon of A Mano says that the name Negroamaro, which is said to have been brought to Puglia by the colonizing Greeks in the 8th and 7th centuries B.C., is derived from Latin and Greek roots for its dark colour; nigra in Latin and mavro in Greek, citing one of the grape‘s synonyms, Nigramaro, as evidence.
