NEW VINTAGE 2016
A deep-purple, almost black powerful elegant wine with hints of blackcurrant, violets, and a definite chocolate finish!
Great with heavy meats, cheese, Indian Foods, and deserts.
A wine with low acidity, dry, and with 14% alcohol relatively moderate for a Donato wine.
In terms of vineyard area (approx. 1,800 hectares) Nero di Troia, also called Uva di Troia, is the third most important of Puglia’s native black grape vines after Negroamaro and Primitivo.
The origins of Nero di Troia are uncertain, a mixture of sparse scientific data and plenty of legends. Its name provides the first clue, because it links to the legend of how fugitives from the destruction of Homer’s mythical city of Troy, led by the Greek hero Diomedes, landed on the banks of the River Ofanto on the Tavoliere plain.
