2017 masserie pizari negroamaro salento igt
Masserie Pizari, established in 2005, is in the “heel” of Italy in southern Salento (Puglia), between Gallipoli and Leuca, in an area where Negroamaro and Primitivo vines have been grown for centuries. The vineyards are a few kilometers from the sea. Only the best clusters are used to make the Salento Rosso Negroamaro. Grape yields are kept low and temperature control in the vats keeps the fermentation process even (which is quite an achievement in such a hot climate!). The result is fresh, fruity and flawless wines that give a pure taste of this secluded and beautiful part of Italy.
The 2017 displays intense ruby red color. On the nose you’ll detect aromas of red berry. In the mouth you’ll love the black cherry and black plum flavors, along with an herbal note (dried thyme.) The wine is medium-full bodied. Long finish. Pair with barbecue chicken pizza, pulled pork sandwiches or teriyaki. Caramelized foods seem to bring out the sweetness in this wine.
