Negroamaro IGT Puglia is an organic red wine made only with Negroamaro grapes. Its strong connection with the territory is evidenced by its typical taste. In the mouth it is full, enveloping, soft but supported by a pleasant freshness and a dense but not aggressive tannins. The color is ruby red with purple hues. The scent is characteristic of blackberries and jam, with notes of toasting and vanilla.
Negroamaro IGT Puglia goes perfectly with traditional Apulian dishes. Ideal with first courses of fresh pasta with sauce and cacioricotta, it also goes well with first courses with legumes and seasonal vegetables. It does not disdain the combination with particular meat-based dishes such as the famous “torcinelli” and is made from lamb’s intestines filled with lamb’s sweetbreads.
