Piantaferro Intrigo Negroamaro 2019$ 25.00 incl. GST
A fistful of fruit from southern Italy here, Negroamaro transalting as ‘the bitter black one’. From vineyards around different provinces of Puglia, a satisfyingly rich and rounded red.
Intense deep ruby red in colour, leads with mature black berry fruits and spices, coffee and cinnamon on the nose. Full bodied and rounded in the mouth with an earthy richness with abundant plum, prune and dark chocolate backed with a scattering of broad tannins to give texture.
