2019 Luccarelli Negroamaro Puglia Italy – The Terre di Sava winery was founded in 2008 and today produces a range of wines designed to celebrate the wine-making history of Sava, within Puglia (South East Italy).
Negroamaro, also Negro amaro, is a red wine grape variety native to southern Italy. It is grown almost exclusively in Puglia and particularly in Salento, the peninsula which can be visualised as the “heel” of Italy. The grape can indeed produce wines very deep in color. Wines made from Negroamaro tend to be very rustic in character, combining perfume with an earthy bitterness. The grape produces some of the best red wines of Puglia, particularly when blended with the highly scented Malvasia Nera, as in the case of Salice Salentino.
ruby red color with purple reflections; intense, vinous, spicy and fruity, with notes of black berries (black currants and berries). Medium bodied, velvety, very good balance between freshness and warm feelings, longlasting and savory aftertaste.
xcellent with pasta dishes, meat in general and medium aged cheeses.
