Negroamaro origin - ancient grape variety interpreted in a modern way
Negroamaro is considered an autochthonous grape variety from Apulia, whereby the origin is often attributed to the Greeks. However, there is no proof for the thesis so far and so Italy is fixed as origin for the time being. The name is composed of Negro, the Italian word for black, and amaro. The latter can be translated into German as bitter, although no bitterness occurs in Negroamaro when it is fully ripe. Another possibility of translation comes from the Greek. There, amaro is also translated as black. Black-black - fits the almost black color of the red wine.
Today, Italian wine is found almost everywhere in Puglia. What began largely as a blended wine has rewarded the areas in Puglia with their own seals of quality.
