Name of varietal: Negroamaro
Common synonyms: Nero Amaro, Abbruzzese
Parentage of the grape: indigenous to Puglia, Italy
History of the grape: The name is a combination of the Italian words for “black” and “bitter,” however, the latter description is more of a description of its uniquely concentrated spicebox characteristics. It’s a grape that’s been enjoyed in some form since at least the 6th century in Puglia, Italy. It’s been an enduring varietal in the region since it’s easy to grow in abundance and resistant to diseases and low rainfall.  
The wines from Salento are considered the best examples of wines made from Negroamaro. It plays a key structural role in Salice Salentino, a popular red blend it shares with Malvasia Nera, Montepulciano and Sangiovese. 
Characteristics of the grape: deep, dark, medium tannins, soft, round, blackberries, black currants, clove, nutmeg, allspice Read more »

  • I guess last night was odd Italian grape night as we then drank this Italian red blend of Negroamaro, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon made via the appassimento process. Round, lush, juicy with a bit of blackberry jam but not over extracted. Read More

  • The Negroamaro and Salice Salentino wines from the Puglia region are phenomenal with a deep red color and incredible rich full flavor without many tannins. Extraordinary!
