Nerìo 2015 according to Alexander Peartree, Tasting Director by WineEnthusiast: “Opaque ruby in the glass, this dense red offers aromas of liquor-soaked dark cherries, anisette and sweet oak tones on the forward nose. The palate is supple in feel, with a rich red cherry flavor that’s ensconced in warm spice tones. There’s a good grip to the palate in fine, integrated tannins and lifted acidity. It certainly isn’t bashful in oak, but there’s plenty of lush fruit to fill it out—a style that many might enjoy.”
Nerio Rosso Riserva Nardo ‘Doc 2012 according to Enrico Malgi, on LucianoPignataro.it: “The bottle in question, organic method, is unquestionably one of the best in all of Salento, the result of a blend of 80% Negroamaro and a balance of black malvasia. The beautiful ruby red color shimmering in the glass is symptomatic. The olfactory profile is decidedly intense and intriguing, characterized by variegated aromas. First of all, small and large red fruit is highlighted; and then violet and vegetables; and even oriental spices such as nails carnation, vanilla, and nutmeg, accompanied by a trickle of light smoke. Impact of the sip on the tongue immediately warm, but not too much, and certainly soft and caressing without any tannic harshness. Wide and voluminous mouth, overflowing with freshness, dynamism, dryness, roundness, balance, and harmony “.
