Tasty Italian Red

In stock


Negroamaro is a red wine grape variety native to southern Italy. It is grown almost exclusively in Puglia and particularly in Salento, the peninsula which can be visualised as the "heel" of Italy. This superbly priced example is packed full of dried fruit and spice with a distinct meaty character. Perfect for when the sun is going down and the pizzas are in the oven!

91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Warm and spicy, the beautifully lifted bouquet shows dried cherry, chocolate brownie, toasted almond and game characters. The palate is sweetly fruited and delectably expressed, delivering plump mouthfeel and plush texture, finishing persistent and silky. At its best: now to 2019."

Review for the 2014 below…

Yvonne Lorkin, Dish (2014 Vintage)
“Sniffing this wine for the first time is like walking into a delicatessen where every available piece of ceiling space has a hunk of drying meat or salami hanging from it. Rich, meaty and spicy, this superb-value sip is sourced from the Salento region in Puglia, Italy, it’s laced with prune, cocoa and toasty oak notes. Delicious with super-meaty pizza smothered in black olives, mushrooms and herbs”

Jo Burzynska, Viva ​(2014 Vintage)
"Wines from warmer climes have the ripeness that works well once the mercury drops, such as this supple and full-bodied red from Italy’s sunbaked south. It exudes ripe blackberry and black cherry fruit, along with notes of dried fig and sweet spice, finishing with a fragrant flourish of tobacco and florals."
