Winepug Wednesday – Masseria Cavallo, Puglia

Masseria Cavallo Negroamaro Puglia 2009

Tonight’s Winepug Wednesday Wine comes from my fiancé!  It was a crazy day at work and lo and behold a bottle of red was popped open and decanting on the table waiting for us to indulge in that first ‘sigh of relief’ sip.

Coming from our Zagat Wine Club {here} stash, is a still red wine (or table wine) from Italia. It is my first experience with the Negroamaro grape and it is simply divine.  Lots of spice, plum and blackberry flavors, tannic but not too overbearing with a smooth finish makes this wine… yup, you guessed it… a drinking wine! This wine has a flirty finish loaded with prunes and sweet fruit leaving you begging for more (looking like a great Wednesday night)!  An awesome value (~$10) and a great wine to drink NOW, no need to let it sit in your wine cellar.

Where to buy in NYC:  Unfortunately, another wine I couldn’t find in NYC however, if you find it… Let me know! Definitely available through Zagat!
