Negroamaro is a wine grape with a thick skin and blackish-violet color. Beloved for its deep color and rich tannins, it’s almost exclusively found in the Puglia region of Italy. Typically Negroamaro is used in blended wines, (although 100% Negroamaro wines are produced) it’s commonly found blended with such varieties as: Malvasia Nera, Montepulciano or Sangiovese. These red wines are very rustic in nature, and have an earthy bitterness. Fine Negroamaro wines have aromatic notes of allspice, cinnamon, and cloves.

For the past 1500 years Puglia has vinified the finest Negroamaro wines (especially those under the umbrella of the Salice Salentino DOC title). The warm climate of Puglia is ideal, as it allows the grapes to ripen to optimum levels. As a vine, Negroamaro grows vigorously and is a generous producer, carrying grape clusters of 300-350 grams. Negroamaro is a drought-resistant variety, and conforms well to the Mediterranean-esque heat and limited rainfall of Puglia.

WineStyle recommends this affordable red wine with: pepperonata, spaghetti and meatballs, antipasto, grilled tuna steaks, slow baked lamb and potatoes, and meatlover's pizza.

Dissecting the name reveals two words, Negro and Amaro. In the native Italian tongue, Amaro means bitter, while Latin reveals Negro to mean black. While the grape is very dark in color and the wine is a brilliant shade of red, it is definitely not bitter. This brings rise to another theory that it’s not Amaro, but Maru, which shares roots with the word: Merum.

Merum was a wine brought to Puglia in the 7th century BCE by Illyrian colonists. Pliny the Elder is indicates that Manduria (a fairly populated city in Puglia) is viticulosa, that is to say “full of vineyards.” When Rome fell, and took much of civilization with it, winemaking survived mostly in monasteries. For this area that would be Murgia, and the Greek Orthodox in Salento.

Thus it is theorized that Negroamaro, is in fact, the grape used in the Merum wine of antiquity. Therefore the meaning of the name is not “black bitterness,” but “dark wine.” Order Now! You can buy this dark wine at good prices in our online shop. Our delivery is very fast and your sale is always a guaranteed purchase.
