Nero di Troia | Grape variety

Uva di Troia means something like 'the grape of Troy'. Today, however, it is more commonly referred to as Nero di Troia, meaning 'the black grape of Troy' in reference to the popular Nero d'Avola grape variety. Nero di Troia is a grape that produces a deep dark, almost purple shimmering red wine. Its wine is also very tannic, rustic and drinkable and has a high alcohol content of up to 14 percent. It is mainly found in the Italian red wine varieties Rosso Barletta, Rosso di Cerignola and Castel del Monte.

The Nero di Troia grape variety is an ancient indigenous red wine variety that is mainly cultivated in the Italian region of Apulia, where it was discovered. Although there is also a place there called Troia, it is often assumed that the Greeks brought this grape variety with them from the now destroyed and legendary city of Troia. In addition to Apulia, the provinces of Brindisi and Foggia are also among its growing regions.

Unfortunately, Nero di Troia is not a particularly high-yielding grape variety. It is very late-maturing and only moderately vigorous. It is also susceptible to downy and powdery mildew and is threatened by the warm, Apulian south wind Favio. For this reason, it was neglected for a long time, but in recent years more and more winegrowers have been cultivating it as a single variety. - Gerardo

´Vigna Pedale´ · Castel del Monte Rosso Riserva DOCG 2016, Torrevento, Apulien
Vigna Pedale · Castel del Monte Rosso Riserva DOCG 2016

Torrevento, Puglia

The color of the Vigna Pedale is a dark garnet red with violet reflections. The aroma is delicately spicy with notes of wild berries, thyme and a hint of earth. Concentrated and elegant on the palate, with nuances of berries and a hint of laurel and pepper. The finish is surprisingly long and compact, with rustic tannins. Excellent with red meat on the spit or from the grill as well as game and fine poultry. - Gerardo [TS12/17]

"The winery has now underlined its reputation as one of the most interesting addresses in the Castel del Monte DOC area with the release of the Rosso Vigna Pedale Riserva. With an exciting stylistic blend of elegance and bite, this single-varietal Nero di Troia once again earned our top prize, enticing us with fine tannins and a smooth, full-bodied fruit flavor." - Gambero Rosso

"Bright ruby red with a drop of violet. In the nose with nuances of Amarena cherries, red beet, also with great spice, after a little time then on noble wood nuances, seems stony. On the palate with clear juiciness, shows a lot of fruit in the core, cool course, balanced and with breed, in the final firm pressure." - Falstaff

"Concentrated purple red. On the nose aromas of red fruit, plum and sweet notes of tobacco and leather. The palate is really of great impact, powerful, rich and with an acidity that manages to create an excellent balance." - Daniele Cernilli (Doctor Wine)

´Il Falcone´ · Rosso Riserva Castel del Monte DOC 2017, Rivera, Apulien
Il Falcone · Rosso Riserva Castel del Monte DOC 2017

Rivera, Puglia

"Sparkling ruby with a slightly pale edge. Opens on the nose with emphatic earthy tones, of underbrush and moss, then also of saffron, plums, some leather, appealing. Very juicy on the attack and course, opens with fine-meshed, present tannin, builds clearly, lots of juicy fruit on the finish, salty." - Falstaff

"Herb and ashy smoke notes underscore this creamy red, which offers expressive flavors of plump cherry, violet, rich leather and sanguine beef. Well-knit and juicy, featuring light tannins and lots of ground spice accents on the finish." - Wine Spectator

"The Castel del Monte Il Falcone Riserva does a great job of highlighting the Nero di Troia element of this blend. The wine is composed of 70% Nero di Troia and 30% Montepulciano, but with this balanced vintage we get a better view of this special native grape of Puglia. The bouquet boasts a wild side with bramble, forest berry and pressed violets. Other aromatic components include toasted nut, licorice and tar. The tannins are softly polished and help to give the wine a silky texture. This may be the best vintage of Il Falcone Riserva that I have come across." - Robert Parker

´Puer Apuliae´ · Nero di Troia Riserva DOC 2014, Rivera, Apulien
Puer Apuliae · Nero di Troia Riserva DOC 2014

Rivera, Puglia

"Rich, deep dark ruby. Opens with rich, intense nose, smells of leather, pickled nuts, also pickled cherries and plums, seductive. On the palate the wine is dense and deep, opens with tightly woven, present tannins, polished and elegant at the core, spreads out nicely, reverberating with cherry and cranberry, long." - Falstaff

'This nicely oaky style brims with sappy blackberry and cassis fruit, revealing hints of mocha, dried mint and black licorice. This is enlivened by bright, focused acidity and a subtle streak of minerality. Medium-bodied, with a fresh, spiced finish." - Wine Spectator

'This more structured, concentrated version of Nero di Troia opens with aromas of allspice, mature black fruit, violet and a whiff of leather. The bold palate delivers ripe black cherry, black pepper, grilled herb, vanilla and a chocolate note alongside big, velvety tannins." - Wine Enthusiast

'The 2009 Castel del Monte Nero di Troia Puer Apuliae is one of the top wines from Puglia today in terms of pedigree and sophistication. The bouquet is seamless and dense with a beautiful sense of varietal pureness. It is a pure expression of Nero di Troia (aged in oak for 14 months) with a plentiful bouquet of dark cherry, blackberry, licorice, cola, pressed flowers and grilled herbs. The floral component is its most compelling characteristic. Smooth tannins and bright acidity give the wine a sense of integrity and persistency. Many reds from Puglia can taste jammy and heavy. This wine however delivers elegance and focus." - Robert Parker
