Negroamaro:

The grape is of uncertain origin and some believe it was introduced by the Greeks. For centuries, the grape has be considered native to the Salento penisula, visually known as the heel of the boot.  Its name derives from the dialect  "niuru maru" for its black colour and slightly bitter notes. Wines made from the grape tend to be rustic in character, combining fragrant fruit with an earthy bitterness. Recent DNA analysis suggests that it is loosely related to the white grape, Verdicchio (Verdeca), and Sangiovese.
