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 »

  • Rosso del Salento Tenuta Notarpanaro Taurino IGT Azienda Agricola Taurino Italien Apulien Negroamaro Malvasia 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Composed primarily of the Negroamaro grape variety, the Notarpanaro glitters by its originality and generosity. Relieved from good flavors of cherries and spices with its profile simply quite rustic, which gives it a good personality. All the great taste of southern Italy bottled! Read More

  • Azienda Agricola Taurino Cosimo Salice Salentino Riserva 2004

    Snoothrank:

    I was first exposed to Salice Salentino while dinning in a quaint, but very comfortable, restaurant in Amsterdam.

I fell in love with it immediately and have purchased (and consumed) several bottles since firs... Read More
