VARIETAL

Nero di Troia, Rosso Puglia IGP

10,00
The Nero di Troia Red Puglia IGP from Villa Schinosa encapsulates the historic soul and oenological richness of North-Central Puglia, offering a sensory journey back to ancient times. This grape variety, linked to the legends of Troy and introduced to Italy during the Hellenic era, finds in the lands of Villa Schinosa the ideal terrain to express its magnificence fully. Nero di Troia presents a deep ruby red color, enriched with orange and purple hues that prelude a bouquet of violet and black fruit, with a lightly spiced touch. The vinification, mindful of tradition yet open to innovation, and maturation in Slavonian oak barrels, give this wine a full structure, an enveloping body, and well-balanced tannins, all completed by a surprising softness. Perfect with intense dishes such as red meat roasts, game, and aged cheeses, Nero di Troia is an invitation to rediscover the authentic flavors of the Puglian land, to be enjoyed in moments of sharing, served at the ideal temperature of 18°/20°C.
