Why you’ll love it:
The Terre di Sava projected began in 2008 with the vision of protecting and restoring the native grape of Puglia and its winemaking traditions. The Salento wine region around Sava has the largest and best native Negroamaro vines, some of which are over 100 years old. It was Terre di Sava's aim to rejunivate some of these old vineyards using modern technology to produce authentic wines that reflect the unique surroundings of this region.
Dark and tannic are the hallmarks of this variety. Loads of black fruit aromas and flavours. Blackberries, blackcurrant, liquorice and a hint of black olives. Rich and plush mouthfeel with big velvety tannins, medium acidity and just simply YUM!
