Areas of cultivation It is the most widespread variety in southern Puglia, especially in Salento; Comes into the composition of numerous and famous Apulian wines, especially rosé.
History Its origin is very ancient and must be traced very much to the same as most other red grapes in southern Italy: the Greek colonization that took place from the eighteenth century to Christ in the whole peninsula, especially in the South. Despite its presence already in ancient times, the vine was only described in the nineteenth century, when a parasite that was strongly damaging the vines was reported by Achille Bruni to Apelle Dei, university professor. It was 1872 and it was the first written description of the vine under the name of Negramaro. Negro Amaro, also known as Negramaro, owes its name to its main features, the almost black color of its wines and a bitter aftertaste. The etymologists, in fact, have also failed to establish the exact origin of the term, are in agreement with two hypotheses. The first one sees the name composed of the Latin term niger and the Greek mavros, then corrupted in dialect in the term maru, in salento meaning black. Here is the coloring of berries. The other hypothesis, however, directly involves the dialect Salentino niuri maru, which instead describes the bitter taste of the closures on the palate.
Ampelographic features Leaf: large, pentagonal, quinquelobata and trilobata; Pectoral breast with narrow V; Upper lateral breasts with superimposed edges, shallow lower lateral breasts, U or closed limbs, often one in U and one in V; Top green page, glabra; Bottom green-light bottom, opaque; Ribs of 1st and 2nd order protruding, arachnoid, partially red; Thick flap, with a slightly wrinkled surface; Involute lobes; Corner at the top of the terminal lobes: straight; Pronounced teeth, irregular at convex margins, mucronates.

Characteristics of the wine obtained from this grape variety With the bitter Negro, wines are obtained from ruby ​​red or rosé cerasuolo, depending on the vinification system used. The scent is intense, vinous and fruity, with scents of black berry fruit. Equipped with medium structure, taste gives a good balance between freshness and pseudo-caloric feelings, with just mentioned tannicism.
