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!

Ruby red in color; very elegant bouquet with aromas of tobacco and licorice. The palate displays ripened red berries, anise and licorice.
The question mark beside the score of the 1999 Notarpanaro relates to its controversial late harvest Amarone-like notes along with a touch of volatile acidity. Its big, spicy, earthy nose is reminiscent of burning tobacco intermixed with aged beef, ashes, and sweet cheese. Not for everybody, it is an authentic, rustic southern Italian red made in an old style. Drink this fascinating effort over the next 2-3 years.
Deep red. Reticent aromas of red currant, roasted herbs and exotic spices. Sweet and fat but vinous; full and generous. The slightly roasted cherry and raspberry flavors are nicely shaped by ripe acids that also extend the finish. Big but not heavy, with rather fine tannins.
The 1990 Notarpanaro (which also tastes like the Italian version of Zinfandel) possesses dry almond-like flavors to go along with the weedy tobacco, licorice, and berry fruit. Spicy, round, and generously-endowed, with a late-harvest, Amarone-like character, it should be drunk over the next several years.
Notarpanaro is the name of a single vineyard, estate-bottled red wine. It is made from a blend of two indigenous grapes, Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera. The wine reveals an intense ruby red color, full, rich, expansive flavors and an elegant feel on the palate. Serve as an accompaniment to flavorful, rich dishes; particularly meats and aged cheeses. If you like Dr. Taurino's Salice Salentino, you'll LOVE his Notarpanaro!
The outstanding 1997 Notarpanaro was fashioned from an identical blend [to the 1999 Salice Salentino: 85% Negramaro and 15% Malvasia Nero], but spent over three years in French oak, of which one-third was new. It exhibits a distinctive earthy nose of creosote, scorched earth, pepper, spice, black cherries, and licorice. Full-bodied, well-balanced, and cleanly made, with abundant glycerin, power, and richness, it would be a perfect foil for leg of lamb. Consume it over the next 5-6 years.
An outstanding red from the Salento region, the Notarpanaro has a fully developed bouquet of dried herbs, exotic spices, anise, truffles, smoke, and deep forest scents. Lavish cherry and plum flavors explode on the palate, and a portal opens up to another place and time, and you find yourself back in the Renaissance period, writing Italian poetry. Well, maybe I got a little carried away, but you know what I mean, a taste of Italy will do that to you.
