2015 Negroamaro Rosso "Arcangelo" (Palama)
Palama, Negroamaro "Archangelo", Puglia, Italy 2015 100% NegroamaroPLUM & RASPBERRY, CINNAMON CRUMBS, SUAVE & GENTLE Of all the things we might accuse Puglia’s home-grown star, Negroamaro, of, gentleness probably wouldn’t be at the top of the list, but Niní Palamá has developed a notable and distinctive talent for taming the brooding reds that populate the Salento peninsula. This rendition carries forward the concentrated dark fruit and baking spices associated with the Negroamaro variety yet clocks in at an outlandishly reasonable 12.5% ABV with delicate tannin and guzzleable gusto! Serving Suggestion: Charcoal-grilled sausage & minced pork skewers w/ rosemary, parsley, & grated pecorino. Baked potato & eggplant w/ parmesan, puréed tomatoes, & garlic.
