this wine shares a few of the characteristics with cabernet sauvignon. high level of tannins and a good creamy mouth feel. a bit closed on the first sip, but it opens up.
intense and fragrant bouquet of red berries with green herbs.
this is actually an excellent meditation wine, but goes beautifully with food. its on a roll with leaner steaks, beef or lamb is a good option. if you’re in the mood for a pasta, whip up some penne with rabbit ragu with thyme.
100% nero di troia, which is an ancient grape variety from puglia. the grapes are low yielding, thick skinned and produce structured, powerful wines. after 12 months in wood and 8 in steel, and bottle refinement the wine is well rounded and the 2010 vintage is ready to drink, but can absolutely be kept much longer.
torrevento has a large production, but there is still a handcrafted feel to their wines. amongst their main goals is revaluation of the ancient and traditional grape varieties of puglia, such as nero di troia and bombino nero. they care about our planet too, and all their wines are biological.
