Nero di Troia IGT Puglia

This variety grown in Capitanata is of unknown origin, though it definitely has some link with the city of Troy. Harvested by hand when just ripe, it undergoes 10-12 days of skin contact and fermentation at a controlled temperature of 20°C with constant pumping-over and delestage, followed by malolactic fermentation in steel. The result is a deep ruby red wine with an enjoyably broad, harmonious bouquet and a warm flavour.
