Negroamaro

Il Negroamaro (also known as negro amaro and negramaro) is a black grape variety grown almost exclusively in Puglia, particularly in the Salento area. The origin of the name according to some is nothing but the repetition of the word black in two languages: niger in Latin and μαύρο (transliterato mávro) in Greek, hence the dialectal màru. According to others, it derives from the very dark color of the berries and the bitter taste of the wine. It is one of the main vines of Southern Italy. It is an extremely versatile grape, also widely used for vinification in rosé. On the market it is possible to find both products vinified in purity or mixed. Salice Salentino DOC is very well known. It is obtained through a mixture of 85% Negroamaro and 15% Malvasia Nera grapes, which weakens the typical bitter characteristics typical of Negroamaro.

'Fuè' is a 100% Negroamaro Rosato from the La Torretta winery that produces in its vineyards using manual winemaking techniques, obtaining a niche production of up to 25,000 bottles per year. The sapling vines, close to the typical territory of both Primitivo and Negroamaro, are 3 km from the sea. The sirocco of the Ionian Sea brings the moods and flavors of the sea helping to create a wine with extraordinary organoleptic structures. Strong and permeating aromas of wild berries, with a prevalence of currant and floral notes of violets and geranium. The acidity of entry into the mouth is well balanced by the freshness and floral notes. Very pleasant, delicate and well-balanced rosé. Excellent with raw, shellfish and fish dishes.
