Nero di Troia: a mysterious Italian grape variety
The Italian wine landscape is rich in diversity and fascinating grape varieties, each with its own history and characteristics. Among them is a true pearl of southern Italy: the Nero di Troia. In this blog article, we take you on a journey through the history, origin, soil characteristics and unmistakable taste of this unique grape variety. We also take a closer look at the renowned Rivera winery, which plays a leading role in the cultivation and vinification of Nero di Troia.

The origin of Nero di Troia
The Nero di Troia grape variety is closely associated with the Apulia region in southern Italy. Its origins date back to ancient times, when it was already cultivated by the Romans. The variety is named after the town of Troia in the province of Foggia, where it has been native for centuries.

Soil conditions and growing regions
The vineyards in which Nero di Troia thrives benefit from the climatic conditions and unique soil composition of Apulia. The region around Castel del Monte, with its calcareous soils and Mediterranean climate, offers ideal conditions for growing this grape variety.

Characteristics of the wines
The wines from Nero di Troia are characterized by their finesse, elegance and structure. They are characterized by aromas of dark fruits such as cherry and blackberry, paired with spicy notes and a pleasant acidity. Compared to other Apulian wines, they are often somewhat more restrained in their alcohol content, which increases their drinkability and versatility.

Rivera and its commitment to Nero di Troia
Among the many wineries in Apulia, the Rivera winery occupies a prominent position in the cultivation and vinification of Nero di Troia. Since its foundation at the end of the 1940s, Rivera has consistently pursued the philosophy of expressing the unique characteristics of this grape variety. Through careful work in the vineyard and in the cellar, Rivera succeeds in producing wines of the highest quality and authenticity, which reflect the terroir of Apulia in a unique way.

Nero di Troia is undoubtedly one of Italy's most fascinating and characterful grape varieties. Its unique taste and versatility make it a true jewel of the Italian wine world. Thanks to wineries like Rivera, this traditional grape variety continues to be promoted and its uniqueness appreciated.
