Sea Change Negroamaro 2018
IGP Salento, Puglia, Italy
From the imposing Apennine Mountains to the sparkling waters of the Ionian Sea, Puglia is a wonderfully diverse and rich landscape located in the south-eastern corner of Italy. During our travels we have fallen in love with the vibrant flavours and Southern Italian charm that radiate from every part of this varied region. We want to let you in on a bit of a secret, Negroamaro is a fantastic regional red grape variety (you probably haven’t heard of it), but let us reassure you it’s a real favourite of the local ‘Pugliesi’ and ourselves alike. Undoubtedly over-delivering on quality, this award-winning wine offers the perfect balance between a fruit led Merlot and an intense flavoursome Malbec. Give it a go – you won’t be disappointed.
Sea Change Negroamaro is bursting with red fruit and sunshine, and we think it really ticks all the boxes, especially with its velvety mouthfeel. Medium bodied with soft tannins, the initial burst of bright fruit is followed by a smooth, lingering finish. A real crowd pleaser.
We recommend this wine as an accompaniment to any meat dish. But let’s be honest, if you’re thinking southern Italy you can’t go far from wholesome pasta dishes or crispy stonebaked pizza – both taste great alongside a glass of Sea Change Negroamaro.
