#negroamaro bem clássico, com cheiro e gosto puxado no mel. Um pouco mais encorpado e alcoólico. Vale demais. — 3 years ago
Looks like a strawberry Jolly Rancher. Smells like McIntosh apple skins and the white mesocarp of watermelon had a freakish baby. Tastes like those things with a rhubarb twang. Dry but with a nice fruit/acid harmony and firm, mouthwatering tannins. More, please. #rosato #pinkitalian #negroamaro #salento — 2 years ago
A big style, built for rustic fare! Raspberry reduction, cinnamon, vanilla, anise, cedar and blackberries. Medium heavy mouthfeel exhibiting firm tannins and relatively dry. Mocha-raspberry, vanilla tobacco, lingonberry, and a light, dry mint on a dark and rich offering! Cinghuale anyone? #Puglia #Manduria #primitivo #negroamaro #bbqwine #italianwines #rosso #blacknwild — 2 years ago
Mmm- tobacco and beef fat on a Friday night.

Like the last sip of espresso before a Neapolitan shoot out, this wine is all umami complexity: Tar, black pepper and fig combine in rich, mature flavors of dried red fruit that leave your mouth feeling cool and refreshed. Pour it with grilled pork.
90 The Wine Advocate
The 2006 Negroamaro Maime is more powerful and burly than the 2007. Cured meats, smoke, licorice, earthiness and wild cherries are some of the notes that emerge from this distinctive red. Elements of rusticity run through the wine. The bold, extroverted personality may not be for everyone, but there is no shortage of personality and sheer character here. Firm tannins build on the virile finish. — 4 years ago
