2016 Contrade Negro Amaro
CONTRADE Negroamaro Puglia IGT: 100% Negroamaro, one of the most representative red grapes of Salento. Known for producing wines that are full-bodied, rich, elegant and with the typical soft tannins of the Italian “classics,” the word Negroamaro is a Latin-Greek blend which emphasizes the color of the grape: niger from Latin “black” and mavros from Greek “dark”.
TASTING NOTES: Deep ruby red; intense aroma, with notes of cherry and blueberry jam, cocoa, licorice and floral fragrances. Round with warm structure and smooth tannins.
