CANTINE MENHIR 2010 Nº ZERO 100% NEGROAMARO

When contemporary style seamlessly blends with ancient tradition, and one man's dream is nourished with an extraordinary passion and modern vision, the wine of Cantine Menhir Salento comes to life. Gaetano Marangelli, along with his brother, Vito Angelo, natives of Puglia, have seen this dream come to fruition in an unusually short time. In 2000, he began making wines through artisan processes that respect the time-honored traditions of local winemaking, while experimenting with unfamiliar varietals and exploring new ways to emphasize the uniqueness of Puglia's grapes, fertile soil and vineyards. The result is harmonious, balanced yet uniquely powerful wine. This Nº Zero Negroamaro is a perfect example-- we were smitten upon nosing and tasting it and knew our readers would probably react the same way.

The nose is filled with sweet dark plums and blackberries, both baking and peppery spices, leather, English tobacco and a hint of background lavender. The palate is very approachable with upfront ripe fruit flavors, sweet cherry and black cherry, a nice layer of warm brown spices, good grip from balanced acidity, a touch of herbs and pencil lead in the finish. This is great wine for September-- from warmer days to cooling nights this is ready for last-minute barbecues, tailgate parties or end-of-the-day fêtes. Just delicious.
