Schola Sarmenti ‘Nauna’ Negroamaro-Primitivo 2016

27.00 22.00


Out of stock


At organic winery Schola Sarmenti, grapes are picked up by hand and gently laid down into little airy crates, arriving as whole bunches at the winery. Once there, grapes are further selected using an advanced sorting table. With a little more Negroamaro in this blend (60% to 40% Primitivo), the wine has deep, dark berry fruit in spades. The nose boasts a ripe cherry fragrance with balsamic, dark chocolate and tobacco on the finish and savoury dark plum on the palate with ample smoked notes and a fine-grained texture.

Extraordinarily persistent, with soft round tannins extending gently and a well- balanced, long finish this would match sizzling sausage pasta to perfection.

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.
