Masseria Altemura Negroamaro Salento 2014

Masseria Altemura specialises in the indigenous grapes from southern Italy and Negroamaro is very much a Puglian grape which only rarely escapes to other regions. In the right hands it makes wines like this – juicy, plump, pure, really fresh with soft tannins and acidity, delicious at all times of day or, indeed, throughout the year. So good that it was chosen for British Airways’ European First Class routes.
