Feudo di San Nicola Negroamaro Puglia IGT 2004

Member Review by Eric Guido:

This started out closed on the nose and even gave a vegetal hint of fresh peas but, after an hour, opened in bottle, it started to show aromas of plum, a bit of stewed tomato, animal musk and pepper. This may not sound pleasurable to a fan of big fruity wines, but those in search of nuance and complexity would have a great time unveiling the layers found here. The palate was thick and a bit chewy but structured with blueberry, cherry, savory herbs and an aftertaste of spicy cherry and tobacco. The stiff structure kept things interesting against a vodka sauce and its flavors added even more complexities to the tomato and woodsy flavors of the pancetta.
