Negroamaro is a black grape, almost exclusively cultivated in Apulia. It is named after its two main characteristics – the near black colour that its wines’ show and their slightly bitter taste, although this almost refreshing bitterness is often more than offset by generous dark fruit flavours. Hand-harvest grapes from the province of Taranto, in the ‘heel’ of Italy, are employed in the production and the wine is aged for between three and six months, depending on the vineyard parcel, in French oak barrels. This wine is ruby-red with purple hints and it has intense fragrances of wild berries, in particular mulberry and blueberry. On the palate, persistent fruity notes stand out, alongside a distinctive bitter note on the velvety finish.
