Negroamaro

Velvety southern Italian

Translated, Negroamaro means “black and bitter”. But the deep, dark wines from this grape are not at all bitter. On the contrary, fans of soft, lush reds appreciate it for of its pronounced sweetness, its bouquet of ripe dark fruit and for its velvety tannins. The Negroamaro is at home in Apulia, the heel of the Italian boot. It is known under numerous synonyms, an indication that it is an old, native variety. The best examples come from old vines grown in bush form near the cooling sea. Tip: do not let wines from Negroamaro sit too long in the cellar. They have limited aging potential. It is best to drink them when they are young. They are perfect for spaghetti alla puttanesca.
