The region … Corsiero Nero Purosangue is made with top quality old vine Nero di Troia fruit sourced from the foothills of the Apennines overlooking the Gargano peninsula in northern Puglia (the hot, sunny heel of Italy’s boot).
The grape … takes its name from the nearby town of Troia, which was founded by Greek hero Diomedes after sacking the city of Troy in Asia Minor. ‘Nero di Troia’ translates roughly to ‘Black of Troy’. (Corsiero Nero means ‘Black Charger’ – like the trusty steed on the label)..
The winemaker … Mario Ercolino is one of Italy’s most highly awarded winemaking names with one of the highest number of top ratings by any winemaker to appear in the famous Luca Maroni Guide. And when you taste this delicious red, you’ll see why!
And the wine? Get ready for a glass-stainingly deep colour, with bewitching flavours of blackberry, violet, smoky vanilla and oak, all framed by a silky- smooth texture, with a long, intense finish.
This is a superb match to traditional pizza or pasta, laden with chilli, herbs and a rich tomato passata. If you love Italian food, this is a must-have for your wine rack – especially at this incredible low price!
These luscious Italian treasures are always quick sellers. At this price they will absolutely race out the door. Don’t miss out! Put your order in TODAY.
Like the much adored so-called ‘standard’ Corsiero, this punchy rich red is full of the dark spicy cherry fruit of Nero di Troia. It’s a terrific southern Italian grape, deeply coloured and full of dense red fruit, and with excellent structure. However, in our ‘riserva’ edition – our thoroughbred charger, Purosangue – the grapes are from particularly old vines to lend even more intensity of flavour.
