A blend of Negroamaro, Primitivo and Malvasia Nera, the grapes come from selected vineyards which are harvested at the beginning of October, to allow the grapes to have increased maturation. After pressing, the wine undergoes a long maceration on the skins to extract as much richness as possible. It is then matured for 3-4 months in oak before being bottled.
The heel in Italy’s boot, Salento is in the south east corner of Puglia, the south easternmost region of Italy. It is here, in one of the warmest spots in Italy’s peninsula that we find some unctuous, full-bodied, and spicy red wines for surprisingly good value. None more so than in the hands of the winemakers at the Verso winery, based in the heart of Salento, near to the town of Lecce. The Negroamaro red grape reigns in this corner of Italy, translating as ‘bitter and black’ you get a feel for the sorts of wine it can produce. But at the feet of experienced producers like Verso, Negroamaro is by no means bitter, it is smoky, intriguing, dark, and mysterious with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, warming vanilla and dried figs.
