A unique blend of 3 varietals. A great wine for the value and easy to find. Will blend well with food. Amazing quality for under $10.00. I hope they keep producing this blend over the years. I will hang on to some for a vertical in the future!

A very interesting wine. I was intrigued by the blend of three different grapes, though it seemed to me that it taste most like a Cabernet Sauvignon. I sipped a glass of this prior to sitting down to dinner. Not much of a sipping wine as it was a little heavy and rather dry, with definite hints of chocolate and coffee. That said, I then paired it with a DelMonico steak, some vegetables and salad. It worked quite well and complimented the steak. This is a good value for the money and an affordable alternative to a good Cab. Of course, one could also justify paying a few dollars more for a decent Cab instead of this.

Like it less the more I drank it, but it's still good. Dry, spicy, but very nicely balanced.

A fresh Mediterranean red, this blends negroamaro with primitivo and cabernet sauvignon to build its warm, lasting flavors. the spicy, dark fruit sweetness balances savory, gentle tannins, finishing clean and bright. Ready for the beach or a sausage pizza.

Aromas of berries and light, spicy licorice with flavors of dark fruit, chocolate, and hints of licorice with a balanced acidity.

You cannot get better value than this. Ripe berry notes, cassis, molasses and cola serve as a preface for the thick texture and smooth density that this wine delivers to the palate. The wine is thick and succulent with smooth tannins and great length: excellent quality for this very low price.' -Wine Enthusiast

From Antinori comes this incredibly delicious perpetual Best Buy. Neprica is a blend of 40% Negroamaro 30% Primitivo and 30% Cabernet from Antinori’s two estates in Puglia. Of course Negroamaro is the ubiquitous native variety found in virtually ever Puglia wine including the very popular Salice Salentino. Leave it to the masters at Antinori to blend in Cabernet to give it international class and style. The 2007 scored 90 points for its ripe berry notes, thick texture and smooth density. This 2008 is right from the same mold with deep molasses, plum and cassis flavors that linger on the finish. A steal.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes A red blend of two local grape varieties, negroamaro ( 40%) and primitivo (30%), and one international grape, cabernet sauvignon (35%), it offers dark fruit flavors enhanced by echoes reminiscent of black licorice and savory spice. Its tannins provide structure without interfering with pleasure, so the wine feels voluptuous.
