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 »

  • Hisotelarayn Filari de Sant'Antoni Negroamaro Salento 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Really gorgeously perfumed on the nose with spicy, muscatty floral tones, a hint of plum liquor, touches of smoke, sweet baking spices and pomegranate all coming together elegantly. Very well integrated in the mouth with an elegance to it and soft polish to the slight drying tannins that are embedded in a core of black cherry fruit. With enough... Read More

  • Felline Salento Rosso Alberello 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Complex and nuanced on the nose with a hint of musky florality followed by some toasty soil notes, black tea, tobacco, and slightly medicinal vegetal aromas. Rather powerful but super well balanced in the mouth with great supporting acids and ripe, slightly chewy tannins covered with fresh black cherry and plum fruit that retains some of the bla...
