Negroamaro | Grape variety



The Negroamaro grape variety is one of the autochthonous, i.e. indigenous, red vines of southern Italy. Especially in Puglia - the heel of the Italian boot - the so-called 'black bitter' is widespread and produces good and strong red wines. Negroamaro does not have the notoriety of the famous Primitivo, but produces similarly high qualities. Around Brindisi, Taranto and Lecce, the Negroamaro grape has always been cultivated and the vineyard area is only 20,000 hectares. This circumstance is due to the lack of marketing, because until today the 'black bitter' has little attention abroad. Although the wines would have this more than deserved.

All probability, the Greeks have brought this grape variety more than 2,000 years ago to Puglia. There Negroamaro is grown since that time and has become native. It was also the Greeks who introduced the traditional bush-tree cultivation. This was abandoned in favor of the espalier form, which allows higher planting density while maintaining the same quality. It is the unique climatic conditions that characterize the Apulian terroir: The intense sunshine during the day and the milder and cooler breezes from the sea during the nights. Through this interplay of soils and climate, the Negroamaro stores many flavors during its ripening.

Until recently predominantly used for Cuvees, now increasingly the single-varietal development takes place. The best example of Negroamaro is the famous Salice Salentino, where the grape variety is blended with Malvasia. There is no question of 'bitter' with Negroamaro - the 'black bitter'. The wines are indeed powerful and have a high tannin content. However, the southern climate also provides this soft red wine with the typical berry aromas. The slightly higher alcohol content provides hints of rum pot, this combination of fruit and alcohol is - what connoisseurs appreciate so much about Negroamaro. - Gerardo

´Graticciaia´ · Salento Rosso IGT 2016, Agricole Vallone, Apulien
Graticciaia · Salento Rosso IGT 2016

Agricole Vallone, Puglia

This red wine, made exclusively from Negroamaro grapes, is an Italian original of international fame: the particular production process is reminiscent of Amarone and Sforzato, with the grapes dried outdoors on the kiln, without the use of technology and following ancestral methods. Still dry, this straw wine has been one of the most interesting red wine specialties of Puglia for decades, with concentrated aromas of Amarena cherries and some cigar box. Still dry on the palate with lush berry fruit, while balanced and harmoniously structured. The name of this wine legend is Graticciaia. - Gerardo [TS06/17]

"Graticciaia is not just one of Italy's best wines, but also an historic one since it clearly brought into focus the up-until-then hidden qualities of the negroamaro grape. Uniquely creamy, with beyond-velvety tannins and loaded with aromas and flavours of strawberry jam, cherries macerated in alcohol and sage. Simply an exceptional wine." - Ian Domenico D'agata (Guida ai Miglori Vini d'Italia)

"Sparkling ruby with a slight garnet sheen. Opens with notes of dried mushrooms, some orange peel, fragrant, then shows fine notes of blackberries and dried herbs. Compact and dense on the palate, opens with dense tannin, of amazing elegance, fine red berries and fine melt characterize the wine in approach and course, long finish." - Falstaff

"The 2009 Graticciaia is one of the most distinctive wines to emerge from Puglia today. Fruit is sourced from ancient alberello or head-pruned vines and is air-dried on straw mats (called 'graticci' in Italian) for up to three weeks. Stylistically, the wine shares many of the dried fruit characteristics of Amarone from Northern Italy. This expression of Negroamaro delivers dark fruit aromas of prune, raisin, scorched earth and burnt almond shell. It ages in Allier and Never barrique for one year. The charred notes are very strong and come in stark contrast to the very noticeable jammy sweetness that this wine delivers to the palate. The finish is chewy, soft and very ripe.

Vallone is responsible for the only 'aia' wine of Puglia this is loosely inspired by the great 'aia' wines of Tuscany (Solaia, Ornellaia and Sassicaia) in terms of intensity and pedigree. But the winemaking methodology is completely different here. Vallone's Graticciaia is made with air-dried fruit similar to Amarone della Valpolicella. It represents a very special expression that will appeal to those who appreciate an extra dose of sunshine in their hot-climate red wines." - Robert Parkers Wine Advocate
