Description

Negroamaro is a black grape variety most associated with southern Italy, and in particular Puglia, where the warm Mediterranean climate allows the drought-resistant, heat-loving grape to ripen easily.

This young, unoaked version from the Schola Sarmenti vineyards in Salento is lustrous ruby-violet in colour with a warm, dark-fruited nose and a smooth wash of ripe plum, pepper spice and soft coffee. Rich, smooth and easy drinking from start to finish.

Perfect on its own or with meatballs with fennel and ricotta.

Producer: Schola Sarmenti

Schola Sarmenti, a stunning winery with soaring ceilings sculpted from local tuff and lecce stone, dates from the mid-nineteenth century and is run by the Marra and Calabrese families. The vineyards are farmed organically and within sight of the warm waters of the Adriatic. Schola Sarmenti practises "green harvesting", where a portion of the immature crop is sacrificed (i.e. picked and discarded) mid-season to increase the ripeness and quality of the remaining bunches. It also uses the ancient Puglian vine training system, Alberello.
