Negroamaro with Grape Skins (Apulia, Italy)
LE2017, APRIL 2018
AVAILABLE APRIL 2018
Bellissimo Italia... delightful wine, delicious food and stunning sun soaked landscapes. Apulia exemplifies all of these things and more. Explore Apulia, the heel of Italy's boot and follow one of the longest coastlines of any wine region in the country. The Mediterranean Sea graces the region's vineyards with cooling winds maintaining ideal temperatures for growing. Sunny, warm, and dry with some of the most fertile soil in Italy, the area offers the perfect environment for ripening grapes as well as olive trees and wheat fields.
Negroamaro is richly jewel hued, full bodied, and a classic varietal in Apulia. Mild hints of wood and spice on the nose play with fruity notes for a complex aroma. On the palate, ripe berry is complimented by ground baking spice and silky tannins with a long finish. When pairing with food any Italian dish is a great choice but this wine can lend itself to many other cuisines. Choose an antipasto with spicy elements like salami or pepper marinated vegetables like eggplant.
