Plum-ruby like many of its fellow Italian reds, this inexpensive offering is yet another great way to compliment your Italian dishes.
Earthy and leathery on the nose, this negroamaro is both fruity and sassy.
With cherry, currant, and plum notes on the tongue, this wine has more bite than some of its red counterparts—the acidity and tannins are more prominent than the humble primitivo.
A tart finish means this cuts through the acid of pasta sauces and hearty fare; serve accordingly.
Hoochsavvy Grade: B
