Schola Sarmenti Roccamora Negroamaro DOC 2017

Negroamaro hails from Puglia in the south-east of Italy where it has been in play for at least the last 1500 years. It is especially well suited to hot growing seasons. The grape itself is black and intense, capable of producing massive wines of great intensity and character. It succeeds well when made as a single varietal wine in this instance offering an explosion of spice, leather, tobacco and plenty of red and blue fruits. It has mouthwatering acid and a fine tannin finish.

Schola Sarmenti can be found in the Salento region of Italy and specialises in Primitivo and Negro Amaro. They work with an unusually high percentage of old vines and have been instrumental in preserving the ancient Apulian vine training system called Albarello. Also known as ‘little trees’ it’s a form of cultivation that requires intensive manual care of each vine and ongoing pruning … it is expensive to do but allows good aeration and light exposure for the fruit and produces wines with an unusual intensity of flavour. Schola do not use chemical fertilisers or weed killers and while not organically certified grow their fruit using organic methods. These are delicious, handcrafted wines made with love.

Overseas we tasted and reviewed the wines at least twice and then we did it all again as a panel back in Australia, tasting and reviewing the best wines from those shortlisted for consideration. We settled on a very select few - just the 17 superb wines which are now in stock. Drum roll please…

Here’s a little info on each of the wineries from which we have chosen to import these beautiful wines:
