Negroamaro wine

Farmer harvesting Primitivo grapes in Puglia, south-east Italy

Negroamaro has been grown in Puglia for at least 1,500 years, and its name translates as "black and bitter".

The best examples come from the Salento Peninsula, particularly the Salice Salentino DOC. Here, the warm Mediterranean climate ripens the grapes so they're juicy, sweet and flavoursome while the cooling effect of the Adriatic and Ionian Seas maintain the fruit's freshness. While Negroamaro is usually used to make exuberant red wines, it's sometimes used for rosé.

What does Negroamaro taste like? Dark and savoury, Negroamaro combines flavours of ripe black fruit with spicy and herbal notes of clove, cinnamon and thyme.
