PUGLIA IGP NERO DI TROIA
Production area: Countryside around Cerignola
Grape variety: 100% Nero di Troia
Yield per hectare: 80-90 q
Harvest period: Second week of October
Soil type: Clayey-limestone
Vinification: The fully ripe bunches are destemmed and then macerated at a temperature of 25-28°C for 10 days, while another part of the grapes is macerated at lower temperatures to heighten the fruity notes. After pressing, the wine is aged separately: part spending a year in barriques and the rest in stainless-steel tanks in order to achieve a better balance of fruit and spice.It is subsequently bottled and aged for another 2 months prior to release.
Sensory characteristics: Impenetrable hue, with ruby highlights, accompanied by a concentrated nose of red fruit and spice. A full, soft, velvety wine that stands out for its attractive drinkability. The cushiony tannins are accompanied by a vibrant finish.
Food pairings: Good paired with the local Daunian pecorino and with grilled meats.
