Negro Amaro

Negro Amaro is a grape associated with Puglia, even if there are some small plantings in Basilicata and Campania. The word negro means black, while Amaro can stand for Bitter or, as a second origin theory, can come from the Greek word “Mavros” which means black again. So it can either be translated as Black Bitter or Black Black. One thing is sure: the color of its wine is very dark.
