The Negroamaro grape has uncertain origins, was probably introduced by the Greeks and its name comes from the Apulia dialect "niuru maru", black and bitter, for the characteristic black color of the grape and the slightly bitter wine made from it.

It is widely cultivated in Puglia, particularly in the provinces of Lecce , Brindisi and Taranto, and it is the sixth most cultivated red grape variety in Italy. For many years it has been considered and used in cheap blends and for export, only recently the grape has seen a resurgence and it is being used as a main grape or vinified on its own producing elegant and full bodied red wines
