Schola Sarmenti ‘Roccamora’ Negroamaro 2021



Rich and dense with a medium-bodied, concentrated palate of black cherry, peppercorn, paprika and cola wrapped up in silky-soft tannins and juicy acidity. Hugely interesting, original red with brilliant balance, complexity and energy.

Would be great with grilled lamb chops in pepperonata.

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.
