Masseria Altemura Negroamaro 2011

Masseria Altemura Negroamaro 750ml 2011   
Sku: 1840733

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

The indigenous Negroamaro variety is another part of the heritage of the Salento area, so deeply imbued with history. This is a red with an extraordinary tannic texture, which remains impressed on oneís consciousness thanks to the depth of its purple highlights and its generous, easy-drinking style. It expresses all the warmth of earth from which it comes in the wealth of sensory nuances it displays: notes of roses, of strawberry preserve, of rosemary. It matures in the cellars in 65-hectolitre casks for a year, before resting for some time in bottle where its opulence becomes tempered to a degree. It is like a summerís day, happy and sunny, at the first sip; like a glimpse of spring, with its attractive and inviting freshness, as one finishes oneís glassful. Drink it with the joy of discovery and with the respect due to this new frontier of Puglian quality wine.

Tasting notes
Colour Dark ruby red Bouquet Full and intense with notes of cherries, ripe red fruit, jam and a light spicy sweetness with scents of coffee and cacao. Flavour Round, balanced and extremely pleasant with a light almondy note in the finish.

Food pairing
A wine with an excellent body particularly adapted as an accompaniment for red meats, including horsemeat, a typical local specialty, and herbed and aged cheeses.
