Corsiero Nero (187ml) 2021

Item Code: 3970521

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.

Corsiero Nero Purosangue 2020

Item Code: 2641520

Description

Corsiero Nero is an exciting ‘black red’ from the sun-soaked vineyards of Puglia in the south of Italy, a region with “undreamed-of character and potential” (Hugh Johnson).



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. Leading winemaker Mario Ercolino made a rigorous selection of the grapes, then oak aged the wine in barrel to create this sleek, aristocratic red that will warm you with its velvety texture, rich spice and dense black fruit. Partner with equally substantial dishes – we recommend a well seasoned pork and butter bean casserole or meaty pasta.
