From the imposing Apennine Mountains to the sparkling waters of the Ionian Sea, Puglia is a wonderfully diverse and rich landscape located in the south-eastern corner of Italy.
Undoubtedly over-delivering on quality, this award-winning wine offers the perfect balance between a fruit led Merlot and an intense flavoursome Malbec.
Region: IGP Salento, Puglia, Italy
Sea Change Negroamaro is bursting with red fruit and sunshine, and we think it really ticks all the boxes, especially with its velvety mouthfeel. Medium bodied with soft tannins, the initial burst of bright fruit is followed by a smooth, lingering finish. A real crowd pleaser.
We recommend this wine as an accompaniment to any meat dish. But let's be honest, if you’re thinking southern Italy you can’t go far from wholesome pasta dishes or crispy stonebaked pizza – both taste great alongside a glass of Sea Change Negroamaro.
When to drink
Best consumed when youthful and fresh, at room temperature or just below.
56% of all whale and dolphin species have been recorded eating plastic they’ve mistaken for food (source: WDC). By purchasing a bottle of Sea Change Negroamaro you are helping to fund research designed to protect marine animals like the Bottlenose dolphin so beautifully sketched by their designer Katie on the label of this wine.
About Sea Change
Sea Change want to combine their love of great wine with their desire to do something to help protect our oceans.
Turning the tide on the juggernaut that is plastic pollution is only going to happen if we all make changes, even small ones, and this is where the wine you choose can play a role.
With the removal of the unnecessary plastic wrap around the cork, the use of renewable plant-based closures and the paper for the labels coming from certified sustainable forests and made partially from grape waste, combined with a donation to marine charities from every bottle sold they think choosing Sea Change does make a difference.
Find yourself a new favourite wine from Sea Change, a social enterprise making waves of change with their eco-friendly wines.
These winemakers are committed to creating exceptional drinks and caring for our oceans in equal measure. Look closely at the beautiful hand drawn illustrations on each bottle and you’ll notice the marine animals depicted have bits of plastic inside, reflecting the effects of plastic pollution.
Keen to be part of the solution, Sea Change put real thought into their own packaging. There are none of those plastic wraps around their bottle tops and the labels are a mix of paper from certified sustainable forests and grape waste too. Even the corks are made from a renewable plant-based material.
Sea Change also gives back to conservation charities who help protect marine animals too, making a donation for every bottle sold. All this adds up to a lot of small ripples of change and one big positive impact per bottle.
Better still, there’s a great variety in their award-winning range. So you can toast to making a difference whether you’re partial to a prosecco, reds like negroamaro, whites like sauvignon blanc or a rosé.
