SKU #1035225

One of Bon Appetit Magazine's Great Bargain Bottles: "This rustic red from Puglia shows concentrated, earthy flavors that are balanced by aromas of spice." (01/09) 85% Negroamaro and 15% Malvasia Nera on this tongue twister of a red (pronounced skee ach yee ah no chee). Intense and fruity, with hints of wood and spice, with a balanced and smooth palate impression that beguiles with a surprising note of carob.

From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
