Description

A taste of Nero di Troia, one of Puglia’s finest grapes. More often found in pricey blends, it appears here in glorious solo. Made by top Italian winemaker Andrea Bernardini, it's a velvety red full of blackberry, violet and smoky vanilla spice.

The Barbanera family and top consultant Andrea Bernardini have perfected the art of winemaking with the superb Nero di Troia grape. The result is the rich, velvety Corsiero. No need to blend Nero di Troia with softer varieties here. Gently pressed and carefully vinified, it makes a deeply flavoured, silky, fruit-rich red. Nero di Troia is named after the town of Troia in northern Puglia, said to have been founded by Greek hero Diomedes (famous for helping to defeat the ancient city of Troy).

Just outside Troia, the story goes, Diomedes planted vine cuttings named Nero after their dark-skinned grapes and the deep-coloured wine they produced. They certainly earn that title. Ripe, scented Corsiero is perfect with pasta or hearty meat dishes.
