Uva di Troia is an ancient grape, named for the Puglian city of Troia, founded by the hero Diomedes. Used mainly to produce bulk wines in the past, this grape has been found to produce excellent wines when cultivated in the proper way. Hand-harvested in October, the grapes are fermented and aged in stainless steel, then bottle-aged for an additional six months before release. The final wine is unique and distinctive.
Luminous, ruby-red with purple reflections, this wine has fruity aromas of wild cherries, cinnamon, sage and tobacco leaf. On the palate, the wine is elegant and vibrant with velvety smooth tannins and boasts a very long length.
Serve with charcuterie, medium-aged cheeses, roasted lamb or wild game.
