Negroamaro

 

Name of varietal: Negroamaro
 
Common synonyms: Nero Amaro, Abbruzzese
 
Parentage of the grape: indigenous to Puglia, Italy
 
History of the grape: The name is a combination of the Italian words for “black” and “bitter,” however, the latter description is more of a description of its uniquely concentrated spicebox characteristics. It’s a grape that’s been enjoyed in some form since at least the 6th century in Puglia, Italy. It’s been an enduring varietal in the region since it’s easy to grow in abundance and resistant to diseases and low rainfall.  
 
The wines from Salento are considered the best examples of wines made from Negroamaro. It plays a key structural role in Salice Salentino, a popular red blend it shares with Malvasia Nera, Montepulciano and Sangiovese. 
 
Characteristics of the grape: deep, dark, medium tannins, soft, round, blackberries, black currants, clove, nutmeg, allspice Read more »

  • Bacca Nera Salento Negroamaro-Primitivo Red 2014

    Snoothrank:

    A Tasting Room selection. A dark ruby brown in the Glass. Opens with Cinnamon Peach Grape; then on to Black Cherry; finally a bit of Black Olive and ripe Fig. Medium well balanced finish with a long finish of earth and soil, honey and white pepper and fennel. Very impressive especially given the age and the pricing. Read More

  • Leone de Castris Salice Salentino Riserva 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A hint of molasses and cherry on the nose with a clump of earth as well. Easy drinking style and quite fruity, with pleasant red berry and cherry notes and a finish with a touch of clay. 86 pts. Read More

We are bullish on both the Negroamaro and the Primitivo of Conti Zecca from Leverano, close to Lecce, the Florence of Puglia. All of these wines are well made and of... Read More

  • The Negroamaro and Salice Salentino wines from the Puglia region are phenomenal with a deep red color and incredible rich full flavor without many tannins. Extraordinary!
