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 »

  • Gran Passione Salice Salentino Riserva 2012


    Intriguing, smoky notes of forest floor and farmyard on the nose with dark plum and blackberry with some ripe red apple. Assertive and red fruited on the palate with tart raspberry and cherry notes and hints of clove and loamy earth. This is full and fresh with pert acidity, finishing with a warm medicinal note.

  • Dominic Hentall Sangiovese Negroamaro IGT 2014


    Another Naked Wines selection. Very dark opaque Red Purple in the Glass. Opens with Baking Yeast, Flour, and Sour Cherry; a bit of Tar, Oak, and Plum; Flint, Leather, and Cherry; Loads of fruit in a medium round mouthful. Very acidic and tannic which smooths out as it opens further. Rather rustic and a bit too fruit forward for my taste, but int... Read More

    1st things 1st - I was screwing around with another photo and accidentally put up the correct one - my bad. "We call these the "Baby Portos of Italy". After aging properly there is a sweetness that combines with the plush dark berry fruits that when added to the tannic and acidic structure just remind us of baby port wines. Well done "- Paul.88 ...

  • 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!
