A rare taste of Nero di Troia, one of Puglia’s finest grapes, in the perfect sample size. More often found in pricy DOC blends, it appears here centre stage. Made by top winemaker Andrea Bernardini, it's full of blackberry and smoky vanilla richness.
Beyond the Label
Rich and velvety with intense black fruit and spice flavours
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.
"A full bodied extremely smooth red bursting with flavour, the best Italian red!"
