DIECIANNI NEGROAMARO SALENTO I.G.P. 2021

€7.75

Negroamaro is the most widely planted grape variety in Puglia. Both its origins and name are uncertain. The name may  derive from the local dialect  (niuru maru) or indeed from the combination of the Latin word niger and the Greek mavros, both indicating the typical black colour of the grapes. DieciAnni Negroamaro is a deep red colour wine with marked fragrances of plum and cherry on the nose. The palate is full bodied and well-balanced supported by elegant tannins.

The origins of the negroamaro are not known with certainty. It was introduced in the Ionian area by the Greek colonists. Even in the absence of evidence, it can be said that some ancestors of the Negroamaro probably already arrived on the Ionian coast of Salento in the VIII-VI century BC. and then spread to Puglia, Calabria and Campania. This would explain the large number of synonyms (lagrima, porcinara, olivella, negro amaro) with which this grape was known in the nineteenth century. This vine is grown exclusively in Puglia and especially in Salento (Province of Lecce, Brindisi and Taranto).
