Rocca "Amornero" Rosso Salento IGT 2017
88 points (WineAlign, October 2020)
This fine restaurant-quality imported wine is not available at LCBO stores.
The motto of the Rocca winemaking family is: “Five generations, one passion, great Italian wines!”
Grape Varieties: Primitivo and Negroamaro.
Origin: Salento, Puglia.
Aging: No oak aging.
Tasting Notes: Brilliant ruby red with purple hues. Aromas of ripe dark berries such as blackberries and blackcurrants, paired with notes of prunes and raisins, licorice, cinnamon and spices. These aromas are reflected on the palate. The wine is soft and round, full bodied, and well balanced on the palate, with a very pleasing finish.
Food Pairing: Goes well with typical Mediterranean dishes, roasted red meat, barbecue with a tangy sauce (like Asian BBQ), polenta and pasta with tomato sauce, pizza, and aged cheeses. Excellent with lasagna. Tried and liked pairing with Tex-Mex 7-layer dip!
Serving Temperature: 16-18°C.
