Tasting Notes

Cerignola is in the province of Foggia, in the Daunia region, and more precisely on the Basso Tavoliere, which is the southernmost part of the plain known as the Tavoliere delle Puglie. The Tavoliere has alluvial origins and is protected to the north by the Gargano Promontory and to the west by the Daunian Pre-Apennines. To the east lies the Gulf of Manfredonia, which mitigates the cold air from the Balkans in winter.

The soil is characterized by its high limestone content and good drainage properties.

The climate is mild in winter, with adequate rainfall and rare snowfall, but very hot in summer, with temperatures above 40°C not unusual in July and August, and rainfall rare.

Grapes have always been grown in these climates and at these latitudes. The earliest evidence of viticulture in the area dates from the 4th-5th centuries BC, and can be found on the richly decorated wine cups produced by the Daunians. Several testimonies maintain that nero di Troia, the quintessential native grape variety, was brought to Daunia by Diomedes, the Achaean hero of the Trojan War.

The grapes are picked when perfectly ripe and sent to the cellar, where they are selected, destemmed, and macerated at a temperature of 25-28°C for 10 days. After pressing, the wine is aged separately: part spending a year in barriques and the rest in stainless-steel tanks, and then bottled.

Intense purple colour, with pronounced notes of fruit and hints of spices typical of the grape. The palate is juicy, with no sharp edges and good structure.
