Paolo Petrilli. Nero di Troia 'Il Guerro'

Paolo Petrilli. Nero di Troia 'Il Guerro'

Daunia IGT
Grape: Nero di Troia

This is a monumental wine that could change your perception of Puglian wine. It is a pure Nero di Troia, the vineyard is a single limestone slope, pale with chalk and open to sea breezes from the Garganega peninsula. The vines are planted at a density of five thousand plants per hectare and are trained using a single cordon system. No more than a kilogram of fruit is taken from each vine.   13%

The fermentation is in open-topped casks using the wild yeasts and no temperature control. The wine is then aged in barriques (new, low toast) for a year and in steel tanks for a second year. Paolo tried an interesting experiment in 2008 where a part of the Uva di Troia was fermented in tanks off the skins, a move designed to tame the tannins that may have worked, it is so difficult to tell when dealing with a grape like Nero di Troia. It is bottled without filtration.
