Negroamaro wine, a distinguished red wine produced in Salento, Apulia, Italy, is renowned for its robust and complex flavor profile. Deriving its name from the local dialect for “black bitter,” this wine is crafted from the historic Negroamaro grape, with origins tracing back to the 1200s, believed to have been brought over from Greece.

Cultivated in the intimate vineyard settings of “masseria” scattered across Salento, these environments foster meticulous oversight over each production batch, ensuring the wine’s consistently superior quality.

Exquisite Negroamaro Italian Wine

Uve di vino negroamaro raccolte in casettaThis wine is perfectly suited for enjoyment both at home and in dining establishments, making it an ideal choice for any event. It is the quintessential selection for sharing with loved ones when seeking a wine that is both light and rich in flavor.
Negroamaro exhibits a lighter shade, common among rosé wines, without leaning too heavily towards sweetness or dryness, offering a balanced taste. Its aroma is delicately fruity, with cherry and citrus notes.

Sourced from the finest Negroamaro grapes in Salento, this wine boasts a deep ruby color with striking garnet reflections. Its robust and vibrant flavor profile renders it perfect for pairing with rich meat dishes such as lamb or veal.

Contrasting Primitivo with Negroamaro

Primitivo and Negroamaro are two prominent red grape varieties cultivated primarily in Italy’s Puglia region. Primitivo wine features an intense, sturdy character with significant alcohol and tannin levels, delivering a fruity palate of berries, plums, and a hint of spice. This variety is typically aged in oak barrels to further develop its rich flavors and aromatic complexity.
Conversely, Negroamaro wine presents a more subdued structure with less tannin, characterized by dark plum and cherry flavors with subtle spicy and licorice notes. It is usually aged in stainless steel tanks to preserve its freshness and fruit-driven qualities. Generally, Primitivo wine is more robust than Negroamaro, yet both varieties superbly represent the viticultural heritage of the Puglia region.

The term “tannic wine” applies to young red wines that are rich in tannins, which are compounds found in the skins and seeds of grapes, contributing to the wine’s astringent and puckering qualities. These tannins may also be imparted by the wooden barrels used during the wine’s maturation or aging process.

A tannic wine’s appeal can vary based on individual taste preferences and the specific qualities of the wine. An exemplary red wine should possess tannins but should be balanced by other elements such as alcohol content, body, smoothness, persistence, and approachability.

Optimal Pairings for Negroamaro

To properly pair this wine, an understanding of its flavor spectrum is essential. Predominantly featuring red fruit flavors like cherries and berries, complemented by vanilla and chocolate undertones, Negroamaro pairs excellently with robust dishes. It matches well with grilled vegetables and barbecued meats, as these foods share strong flavors that can stand up to the wine’s intensity. It is also an excellent complement to aged cheeses like Parmesan or Cheddar, enhancing the creamy texture of the wine.
Negroamaro del Salento is a prime choice for accompanying red meats and mature cheeses. It also serves as a delightful accompaniment to pasta, pizza, and prosciutto. For an enhanced culinary experience, try it with cold cuts. For those preferring a lighter pairing, consider combining your Negroamaro del Salento with grilled vegetables or barbecue dishes such as chicken wings or ribs.
