Wines from Puglia are still Italy’s best-kept secret when it comes to finding great wines without having to pay “Big Tuscan” prices. A warm climate, fertile soils and surrounded by water on three sides allowing cool breezes off the Mediterranean to moderate vineyard temperatures and you have a great combination for great wines to be produced. So, enter this highly rated Nero Di Troia and you soon see why the secret is worth keeping. This wine is dark in colour and intense in aromas of flowers and bouquets. On the palate, it’s all about the blackberries and plums with some notes of peppers and spices. Best with, pasta, steaks and friends.
