Deep ruby red; intense aroma, with notes of cherry and blueberry jam, cocoa, licorice and floral fragrances. Round with warm structure and smooth tannins.
The red wine is a Negroamaro 100%, the most representative red grape of Salento, the sub-region of Puglia where the Contrade vineyards are located. Its wines are full-bodied and rich, elegant and with the typical soft tannins of the Italian “classics”. The word Negroamaro is a Latin-Greek contamination which emphasizes the colour of the grape: niger from Latin “black” and mavros from Greek “dark”.
