98 points from Italian wine guru Luca Maroni and yet only £9.49! This has to be one of the best deals we have ever offered at Vivino!

When we first read Signor Maroni's review, we knew we wanted to offer our customers this wine and imported a parcel solely for Vivino users. It was such a success that we immediately took the new vintage once it was released!

Amarone-like in style, with grapes that have been left to dry in the vineyards, this is made from Primitivo grapes grown in Puglia - probably the best place on the planet for this variety.

Rich, concentrated and soft, it is available nowhere else in the UK and is an awful lot of wine for very little money!

About the wine

Nero Grande Appassimento is made primarily from Primitivo, blended with Negroamaro. All the grapes come from old vines that grow in the wind-swept vineyards of Italy's southern region of Puglia. The grapes are harvested later than usual and due to the bone-dry climate  they are  allowed to dry into small raisins on the vines. This technique limits the amount of juice left but increases the strength and taste. After rigorous selection of grapes, long maceration and fermentation in temperature-controlled tanks, the wine is aged for 6 months in oak barrels.

Dark red in colour, full of ripe fruit - cherry, blackberry, plum and notes of prunes, pepper, vanilla and a little spice. The palate is fruit-intensive and rich. Soft, mature tannins help to ensure a fine structure and a long and silky finish. Luxurious and well-crafted.

About the winery

Femar Vini was established in 1987 and operates from a very modern winery at Monte Porzio Catone which lies on the boundaries of Frascati, Monte Porzio Catone and Agro Romano. Femar Vini own approximately 40 hectares of vneyards in Lazio but also work with grapes and wines provided by their associated farms in other southern Italian regions and in particular Puglia.

The company has a philosophy based on the search for absolute quality, and it has acheived decidedly ambitious targets within a decade, secure in the knowledge that it is based in an area which repays the efforts of those who work with serious intent.

After having observed and studied the most interesting national and international wine producing companies in depth, and following in the centuries-old family tradition, Felice Mergè, the son of the founder, has been able to develop his own distinctive style by experimenting with new, revolutionary processes of wine making and product maturation. These have helped propel FEMAR VINI to its current levels of quality.

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:

  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.

Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.

If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.

You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.

Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
