Negroamaro Mocavero, 100% Negr0amaro, layered, full bodied, notes of cassis, chocolate and dark berries, very easy drinking yet full red wine.  The Negroamaro is amazing value, sometimes we drink it and think of it as a £15 bottle of wine, such is the balance of opulent fruit, freshness and structure. It actually improves really well over 3-5 years or so. A fantastic wine pasta sauce, sausage and lentils, steak and chips, big meaty stew with porcini mushroom, ideal for a winters night. I haven’t eaten all day, I am making myself hungry….and thirsty!

Francesco Mocavero, what a guy.

When I first met him, he barely spoke, when asked about his wine, he said, 'e molto buono', that was it! But after a while his personality shone through as sure as the sun rises over his vines into a cloudless sky almost every day on his small wine farm in Lecce. A mild-mannered gentleman with impeccable style, Francesco understands the importance of picking early to preserve freshness in the wines from an otherwise overbaked region. He picks the Primitivo sometimes as early as the second week in August and by golly, it is fresh but at the same time, soft, full of fruit and with the characteristic dark cherry sweetness. Francesco is not a natural wine maker. He works his vineyard in as healthy a way as he can whilst ensuring a decent crop of grapes each year. All his wines offer great value for money and tend to suit most palates being some of the most approachable wines we sell. If you like red wine, try Mocavero, if you want a red for a gift then Mocavero is always a safe bet. Francesco is just like that, he is a man who likes to please. It is the Puglian way.

    Lovely mid weight fruit. Oozing with typical Italian character.

    I came across this wine in our local restaurant and just loved it – all the reviews above sum up the unctuous character of this wine which is, of course, perfect for tomato based pasta dishes. A favourite! So glad I researched and found Buon Vino – and highly impressed with the delivery service and speed of delivery! I’ll be back…
