The 2006 Vetrere Lago della Pergola, a blend of an indigenous varietal called negroamaro, and cabernet sauvignon. Negroamaro is a grape that often is rustic, ill-mannered and uncooperative, while cabernet sauvignon is a thoroughbred, well-trained and domesticated. In this wine the cab pulls the negroamaro in line and gives structure, which allows the negroamaro to relax and give the cab some weight, personality and a little wink of an eye. Soft and
luscious yet with structure, balance and decided intrigue, this wine is part of the new Puglia, character reformatted.
