After 6 years in the bottle, is it time?
We think YES! Grapes for this single varietal expression of Negroamaro were sourced from around the region in true cooperative style (Cantine Due Palme being one of the largest co-op’s in Puglia!). The grapes were macerated together, before being aged for 4 months in French oak and given some further time to rest in the bottle. It’s a pretty easy drinking wine, with soft tannins and ripe red fruit. We wouldn’t keep it much longer, but if you drink now you won’t be disappointed.
Negroamaro is an ancient Apulian vine whose origins are uncertain - although it is believed it was introduced by the Greeks. The origin of the name is also not clear; some believe that it comes from the dialectal expression “niuru maru” (black and bitter) because of the dark colour of its berries and the basically bitter taste of the wine.
Grapes harvested in the second week of September and macerated into stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature with selected yeasts, for 8 days. The wine is then racked into French oak barriques where it matures for 4 months. After completing the malolactic fermentation, the wine decants in stainless steel vats prior to bottling.
