The town of Salice Salentino is right in the centre of Puglia, the 'heel' of Italy's 'boot'. Negroamaro is the region's principal red grape, a distant relative of the more famous Sangiovese, whose origins may even predate the arrival of early Greek settlers in Italy. Deep and intense ruby-purple, with an intensely fruity aromatic profile, supported by savoury balsamic and spice notes. Firm palate texture provides good length. Pair with rustic stews of red meat such as lamb with pungent herbs.
