Notte Rossa (Italy) 2019 Negroamaro
4 Stars - Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Reviews
"Deep, ruby-black hue with little transparency, lighter on edge. The nose is full, nuances of blackberries, prunes entwined with an amalgam of spice. Full-bodied, aromas of blackberries, prunes lead a vibrant front, along with spices and subtle herbs. Generous, ripe tannin coated the palate, provide structure and grip; balanced acidity lifted the wine to a perfumed dry finish. Match with grilled steaks and matured cheese over the next 3+ years. Negroamaro grapes from Salento, Puglia. Fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks" Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Reviews, Jan 2021
If ever their was a perfect, wintry, Italian please all red it was this! Soft and savoury Negroamaro from Italys south.
Deep purple red with violet-black reflections, intense and persistent aroma, fruity with blackcurrant and wild fruit scent, spicy with thyme notes. A full-bodied wine, soft and balanced, long and pleasantly flavoured in the end.
