Nero di Troia | Grape variety

Nero di Troia | Grape variety

Uva di Troia, which means 'the grape of Troy'. Today, however, it is more common to speak of Nero di Troia, meaning 'the black 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, reaching high alcohol levels of up to 14 percent. It is found primarily in the Italian red wine varieties Rosso Barletta, Rosso di Cerignola and Castel del Monte.

Nero die Troia is an ancient autochthonous red wine variety grown mainly in the Italian region of Puglia, where it was discovered. Although there is also a place called Troia, it is widely believed that the Greeks brought this grape variety from the now destroyed and legendary city of Troia. In addition to Puglia, the provinces of Brindisi and Foggia are also among its cultivation areas.

Unfortunately, Nero die Troia is not a particularly productive grape variety. It is very late ripening and only moderately vigorous. It is also susceptible to downy and powdery mildew and threatened by the warm, apulian southerly wind Favio. For this reason, its cultivation has been neglected for a long time, and only in recent years has it been cultivated purely by more and more winegrowers. - Gerardo

Il Falcone Rosso Riserva Castel del Monte DOC 2014, Rivera, Apulien
Il Falcone Rosso Riserva Castel del Monte DOC 2014

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 2009 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
