(Was €16.95/Now €9.95) 41% OFF
Made by the family-owned business, The Wine People, this is a powerful and concentrated Italian red made from Negroamaro grapes grown organically on the Salento Peninsula in Puglia. The grape's name literally translates as 'Black Bitter', as it has an inherent earthy bitterness. But it is also naturally floral and perfumed, so when grown in the correct location and allowed to ripen slowly in the Mediterranean sun, as with this wine, concentrated red fruits flavours combine wonderfully with the natural earthiness to give a complex and multi-layered wine. Intense red colour with hints of purple, the nose is very fruity and reminiscent of raspberries and strawberries. This is a full-bodied, well-balanced wine with integrated tannins and a long multi-layered finish.
Food Pairing: This is certified vegan wine, so a simple pasta dish of sun-dried tomatoes and fresh basil or that Sicilian classic, Caponata, would be a perfect marriage.
