MezzoMondo 2010 Negroamaro - 87pts
Availability: Widely available at BCLDB stores
Date Tasted: September 30th, 2012
Tasting Notes: A very consistent bargain red from the South East of Italy using the Negroamaro grape native to the region, which year-after-year delivers excellent value for money with an expressive nose of black cherry, dried cranberry, prune, toasted oak and Christmas spice aromas. The bright, light-to-medium bodied palate follows with red fruit, spice rack and cigar box flavours, soft tannins and a degree of acid just a tad sharp. Try it with smoked Gouda or another full flavoured cheese. Drink 2012-2015.
