Violante

Nero di Troia

Castel del Monte D.O.C.

"Violante" enhanced all the elegance of the Nero di Troia grape varietal with a young and fresh style 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 partly in big French oak casks and partly in concrete vats for 6 months. 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.
