Tormaresca Masseria Maime Negroamaro IGT

At the NY Tre Bicchieri event yesterday I had the chance to buzz through the event fairly quickly, so my tasting notes are short and sweet.

From the Salento IGT in Puglia, Italy comes this 100% Negroamaro aged 14 months in oak barriques and rated 90 points for the 2004 by Wine Enthusiast and a Tre Bicchieri for the 2005.

Deep ruby red colors with aromas of plums and sour cherries, with muscular flavors of summer fruits and oak. Chewy mouthfeel with full body and a long finish.
