Tormaresca Negroamaro Cabernet 2003 IGT
Tormaresca Negroamaro Cabernet 2003 is a dry red wine from the Puglia region in southern Italy. The mix, a 70% Negroamaro and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon makes for an excellent blend. The former brings a dry bitterness to the table while the latter balances it all with its fruitiness. On the nose is a slightly metallic cola, chocolate, oak, and barnyard. On the palate is intense ripe cherry, earth and mushroom. Paired well with whole wheat pasta with olive oil, garlic, toasted pignoli nuts and baby spinach. 13% alcohol and $8 range. Really good deal!
