Tormaresca Neprica Negroamaro-Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Black pepper and other spices. Well balanced. No hint of tannin. Maybe more time breathing would have reduced the pepper. Surprisingly strong for an Italian wine.Add winemaker's notes

Drink Now-The 2010 Neprica is a great example of the inexpensive, utterly delicious reds southern Italy is capable of. This plump, juicy Neprica offers lovely dark fruit, licorice and herbs on a powerful frame. It is an incredible value. Neprica is a blend of Negroamaro, Primitivo and Cabernet Sauvignon. @shopperswines

Medium-bodied, displaying a round mix of black plum, dark cherry and light fig notes, with layers of spice and hints of mountain herb and tobacco. Negroamaro, Primitivo and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now.
Intense ruby red in color with violet hues. Fragrant aromas of black cherry and soft violet notes on the nose, complemented by hints of red fruit. Soft and flavorful on the palate with balanced acidity and round tannins. - WineryBLEND:40% Negroamaro30% Primitivo30% Cabernet SauvignonALCOHOL: 13.5% Vol. ** SOLD OUT **
The estate’s 2010 Neprica is 40% Negroamaro, 30% Primitivo and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. Sweet berries, flowers, mint, licorice and spices waft from the glass in this attractive, mid-weight red. A hint of oak on the finish is a bit obtrusive, otherwise the 2010 is an attractive wine best enjoyed over the next 2–3 years, while the fruit remains vibrant. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2015.
Aromas of berries and light, spicy licorice with flavors of dark fruit, chocolate, and hints of licorice with a balanced acidity.
From Antinori comes this incredibly delicious perpetual Best Buy. It fact Food & Wine Magazine just named one of the Top 10 Best Bargain Wines in the World! "An absurd value!" 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.
