Just as Malbec is the everyday red wine of Argentina, Negroamaro is the red of southern Italy, the grape's native home. On its own, Negroamaro can be a bit rustic and earthy, but in this wine it's blended with Primitivo, known to us American folk as Zinfandel. The result is a juicy, crowd-friendly wine that'll be awesome at any outdoor barbecue you host or attend this summer. You can even hang onto a couple of bottles for next summer and the one after that, as this wine will get better with age. Man has yet to create a better wine to pair with burgers.
With an intense, ruby-red color, this wine offers immediate lush and complex aromas of fruit and spice. It is full bodied, and has a warmer, more aggressive alcohol content than some might be used to, yet it still retains excellent balance due to its soft tannins and bright acidity. This is an ideal companion for roasted meats and aged cheeses, and will develop nicely over the next few years.
