Wine Maker Notes
Native to southern Italy, the Negroamaro grape is the main varietal in this red wine blend. Aged in new French barriques and oak barrels, this full-bodied red boasts bold red fruit aromas, interlaced with notes of spices and hints of vanilla and licorice. Conti Zecca Nero is soft and harmonious on the palate with well-structured, mature tannins and a long, persistent finish. This wine is a nice complement to grilled red meats, pasta dishes with meat-based or spicy sauces, and aged cheeses.
