Indigenous Nero di Troia Puglia IGT

100% Nero di Troia from 15-year-old vines planted on a southern exposure in clay soil at an elevation of 150 meters. Fermented in stainless steel and aged for 3 months. No oak. Troia translates as "Troy" and lies in northern Puglia. Legend has it that the town was founded by Diomedes, a hero of Virgil's Aeneid, who was among the Greeks holed up inside the Trojan horse. The grape is now scarce. Difficult to grow, vines were uprooted mainly by growers lacking passion, patience and resources to produce quality fruit.

This single-variety bottling of Puglia’s native nero di Troia is worth a try for its tangy seeded-berry flavors and lively acidity balanced by some appealing earthy undertones. For salumi or salty cheeses.
