Description

Rivera Negroamaro Salento 2019

Negroamaro is the most typical grape of Salento and has achieved great fame thanks to the intense character of its wines.There are several different theories about the origins of its name. Some believe that ‘negro’ (black) is a clear reference to  its very dark colour, a peculiarity which has been particularly appreciated since the times of the Benedictine monks.  ‘amaro’ (bitter) could refer to its strong tannins, or to the fact that in the past the wine was  left to ferment with the grape-skins for a long time therefore that by the end of fermentation it was dark and very bitter. The most probable explanation is that the name Negroamaro derives from the fusion of the Greek word mavros and the Latin word niger, both meaning “black” and referring to the colour of the grapes, so that  Negroamaro actually means black-black.

As is the case of other Italian vines, the origins of the Negroamaro plant itself are uncertain. It is most likely that it was brought to Italy by Greek colonists in about the 8th century  B.C., and found its ideal habitat in this rocky arid region.  What is certain about Negroamaro – one of Italy’s most ancient vines – is that it has an ancestral bond with Puglia, and as the symbol of the Salento is more than just a native vine.

Rivera wanted to interpret it in a fresh and flowing style with a modern vinification that enhances the intense aromas of small red fruits and the delicately balsamic notes typical of the variety.

Maceration for 8-9 days at 28 ° C with frequent pumping over. 9 months in vitrified cement tanks. Complex bouquet of bitter cherries and raspberry. Medium bodied on the palate with a long complex aftertaste exhibiting the pleasant. Thick mouthfeel with earthy notes, it expresses great pleasure and versatility in combinations. Bitterish note typical of the negroamaro.
