Nero di Troia
Castel del Monte D.O.C.
"Violante" enhanced with a young and fresh style all the elegance of the Nero di Troia and its typical bouquet of violet. The grapes are harvested in the second half of October and are vinified with this objective through a short maceration on the skins at low temperature and then it ages in concrete vats for one year. The result is a wine of great pleasure to serve at 16 ° -18 ° C to enjoy by itself or in combination with soups, pasta sauces and meats. Violante is also the ideal partner of the local cheese Burrata di Andria.
