Negroamaro is native to the warm climate of Puglia in Southern Italy, where it is known for producing highly aromatic, deep coloured wine. In McLaren Vale, Negroamaro is a late-ripening variety showcasing classic varietal perfume with a bright line of acid.
“Gee they do Italian well at Coriole. Sour cherry, a little grilled meat, Mediterranean herb perfume, raw almond. Light to medium-bodied, amaro and dried herb bitterness, bright acidity, red fruits, fine chalky tannin, and a frisky finish of good length. A lovely and lively thing to drink. Yes. 92 points”
Gary Walsh, The Winefront
"Bright, medium red with a purple tinge; the aromas are shy and reserved, pot-pourri and raspberry hints, the palate medium-full bodied and cast in a leaner style, with plenty of firm granular tannins and mild, savoury, somewhat shy fruit flavour. A classy red wine in a very Italianate red-wine style. 92 points"
