NERO DI TROIA
Indicazione Geografica Protetta
It’s produced only during the best vintages with a careful hand-selection of the best grapes; after a quite long maceration time it is aged in barrique of French oaks and then refined in bottles for two years.
Opulent, full-bodied, deep with long persistence. The bouquet is wide and complex: red fruits jams, with heaven and spiced scents in continuous evolution, at the end there are toasted and bit balsamic notes.
Ideal to pair with elaborated main courses, game and long-aged cheeses.
Perfect to be drunk while eating dishes made with truffle.
