This red wine of the 125 collection is 100% Negroamaro del Salento. It is named Negroamaro after the repetition of the word “black” in two languages: niger in Latin and mavros in Ancient Greek. It is a local variety of Salento, in Puglia, and its name refers to the dark colour of its skin. The peculiarity of our 125 Negroamaro del Salento IGP is its alcoholic degree of just 12,5% alc. vol.
This is possible thanks to the thermo-controlled temperature during all the wine-making process, from harvest to production. Its low alcoholic degree makes it an easy-to-drink wine, despite its rich structure typical of the Negroamaro variety. Furthermore, is just 12,5% alc. vol. allow to drink it even cool, with no change neither in its bouquet, nor in its taste.
We suggest its matching with a rich rocket, strawberries and shrimps salad, as well as with crudaiola pasta (with raw tomatoes, cacioricotta and some olive oil) and with pizza.
