If you love the inky black reds of Southern Italy (or the velvety plushness of Amarone) then you will LOVE this special wine – La Fonte d'Oro Negroamaro Primitivo 2020. (And you will definitely love the special price too!)

Hugh Johnson once said that Southern Italy's Puglia is a land of "undreamed of character and potential" and this inky black red from the talented winemaker Simone Cortese shows all that character and potential in spades.

Simone was convinced that Puglia's luscious grapes could turn out a red as fine as the famous Amarones in the north, given the same treatment. So he took Negroamaro and Primitivo grapes, two of the region's blackest varieties oozing dense, ripe fruit character, and air-dried them to concentrate their flavours even more. Of course this is a costly way to make wine (which is why Amarone is so expensive), but the results are truly mesmerising.

This is a seriously rich and sumptuous 'contemplative' red, the extra air-drying time extracting an incredibly rich, flavour-packed juice, which in turn creates an incredibly rich, flavour-packed wine. Our customers love it. They've given it many 5 Star Reviews: "Marvellous" ***** "Perfect" ***** "Simply fantastic" *****.

Wine critic David Walker Bell was also impressed: "A densely packed wine, inkily dark and rich. Blackberry, fruit cake, chocolate, cranberry, cinnamon and nutmeg on the nose. Inviting and warm on the palate, with plenty of toasty oak notes, an earthy minerality, a balm-like texture, and layers of sweet and savoury flavours to discover … 92pts".

You can cellar it for a few more years, to let the flavours become even more complex, and the palate even more plush and velvety, but it's also drinking beautifully right now. If you are going to open it now, decant and serve with something that can handle the rich flavours – a slow-cooked shoulder of lamb for instance. Beautiful!


Want to taste these soulfully rich and decadent Southern Italian reds? You'll have to hurry, as there are only VERY limited stocks. Don't miss out.
