Negroamaro di Lizzano 'Bellicum' De Quarto 2019

Negroamaro di Lizzano 'Bellicum' De Quarto 2019

De Quarto

De Quarto's Negroamaro di Lizzano "Bellicum" is a fresh but structured Salento red. This wine is named after the Apulian wild plum, a tree as strong as the land on which it grows. Negroamaro in this area of Puglia has pronounced freshness traits, with typical red fruit aromas. The palate is tannic, juicy, with great persistence--a perfect example of a southern Italian wine. Gastronomic and versatile, it pairs well with meaty first courses; try it with 'ciceri e tria', the typical chickpea and tripe dish

The Negroamaro di Lizzano 'Bellicum' represents a bottle of very good taste balance produced by the Apulian De Quarto estate. Antonio De Quarto, owner of the winery, processes grapes exclusively from his own vineyards located in the municipality of Lizzano, a few kilometres from the Ionian Sea, in an area where viticulture has been practised since the times of Magna Graecia. The appellation 'Bellicum' derives from the name of the Apulian wild plum, testifying to the link between this wine and the land.

De Quarto Negroamaro di Lizzano 'Bellicum' originates from a selection of only Negroamaro grapes grown in the typically Mediterranean climate of the province of Taranto. The vines are grown in the Apulian alberello style, without herbicides and pesticides, on red soils rich in limestone. Manual harvesting takes place towards the end of September, with the bunches then transferred to the cellar for spontaneous alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks in contact with the skins and at a controlled temperature for a duration of 18 days. Once the fermentation process is complete, the mass matures for several months in steel tanks until final bottling.

To the eye, the Negroamaro di Lizzano 'Bellicum' from the De Quarto winery expresses an impenetrable ruby red colour. The nose is played on red cherry, plum and blackberry scents, accompanied by iodized mineral notes and balsamic memories. Warm and soft on the palate, soon enlivened by the well-integrated tannic texture and the balancing fresh-savoury component. The finish is structured and aromatically persistent. This Negroamaro is a gastronomic red wine that can exalt itself with grilled lamb or pork and mature cheeses.
