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 week of October and are vinified with this objective through a short maceration on the skins at low temperature. The wine is aged for 12 months in vitrified concrete vats undergoing microoxigenation. The wine is released after at least 3 months of bottle ageing. 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.
