This robust and smooth smoky Italian red wine is loaded with sweet chocolate and mocha notes from lavish oak aging. Fleshy black fruit with campfire smoke. Produced by Terrulenta, the 2013 vintage of Negroamaro Nardo is a blockbuster red wine. Pair with Mexican mole.

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Dried fruit, prunes, dried cherries and loads of vanilla, maple and chocolate. On the palate, more dried fruit, plum, cherry, rich round fruit with a hint of leather and salted minerals. Light to medium body. Medium minus tannins. Overall , velvety, salty and rich.

Full-bodied with sweet dark fruit, salinity, oak and smoky touches. Enjoy with savour appetizers and Prosciutto.

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Cola-esque upfront with a sweet cherry fruit and minty flavour. Tannins are young and grippy with a balanced acidity and long black cherry anise finish. Enjoy with salami and hard cheeses. Tasted Feb 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Negroamaro Nardo is a full on juicy cherry, cranberry, raspberry and smoky robust red wine from the Puglia wine region. Schola Sarmenti Roccamora (2013) is produced by Roccamora Nardo Terrulenta. Great value at less than $20. Drink now through 2020. - Community Wine Reviews
