Negroamaro

 

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 »

  • Definitely, these later wines subscribe nicely to the Monty Python ... I am ... I am something of a fan of Negroamaro - the black-bitter of Salice Salentino (Apulia, bottom of the spur on the Adriatic).  I also like Primitivo - another staple of this region.  But with all that Zin in California...But back to Negroamaro… this wine is extremely ...

  • 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!
