Negroamaro is one of the punchiest, boldest grapes in Italy, grown across the hot, sun-baked plains of Puglia. This version by champion cooperative San Marzano is fantastic example at a fantastic price, with heady notes of dark plum, black cherry, pepper and a wisp of vanilla. Balanced and soft, with a fresh acidity, fine tannins and such an explosive fruit profile, this is a perfect rendition of Negroamaro, and a fine introduction to the San Marzano portfolio.

The grapes were fermented in stainless steel to preserve the vibrant fruit flavours. No animal-based fining agents or winery aids were used during the vinification.

 

 San Marzano is an award-winning cooperative of over 1000 vinegrowers in southern Italy, melding time-honoured techniques with innovative and vegan friendly winemaking. They were granted the prestigious title of 'European Producer of the Year' by the Sommelier Wine Awards, 2017.
