Negroamaro is a red wine grape variety native to southern Italy. It is grown almost exclusively in Apulia and particularly in Salento, the peninsula which can be visualised as the “heel” of Italy. The grape can produce wines very deep in color.
Pairing Negroamaro is similar to pairing foods with Zinfandel. Both are great accompaniments to spicy foods, fresh tomato sauces, fresh tomato bruschetta, and grilled meats (the charred flavor is delicious with the wine!).
