Negroamaro – Puglia, Italy
Negroamaro is a dark-skinned grape best known in the Puglia region in southern Italy. The wines from this grape tend to show a deep ruby-red colour, with notes of red cherry, forest fruits, licorice and tobacco. Negroamaro’s high alcohol and relatively high tannin adds strength to blends that would otherwise be quite light. It is most often blended with Black Malvasia.
