Matt’s review:

From the very southern end of Italy, in the famous ‘heel’ of Italy’s boot, Puglia produces delicious deeply flavorful wines, such as Negroamaro.  Torrevento’s 100% Negroamaro is nearly black in colour with a deep ruby hue. The nose shows dark black fruits, some stewed, black cherry, liquorice root, and sweet spices. Ripe dark fruit greets the palate with moderate acidity and a hint of tannins making this a great wine to enjoy with BBQ burgers, ribs, or Italian tomato-based pasta dishes. If you like Sangria in the summer sun then this value priced wine ($8.65 at the LCBO) makes a great choice given its sweet dark fruit flavours.
