"Il Sale della Terra" Nero di Troia IGT 2017 - Antica Enotria

Il Sale della Terra, Nero di Troia Puglia IGT, is the wine that best represents the link between the Tuccio family and Puglia. It is an organic red wine of great balance and elegance, made from the second largest black grape variety in the Puglia region. Nero di Troia is one of the most widely cultivated varieties in Apulia, particularly in Daunia, between the province of Foggia and the area north of Bari. Its origins are certainly very much so, although they are shrouded in mystery. For some, its strange name refers to Diomedes, the hero of the Trojan War, who probably brought it to Apulia. Others, however, believe that its name refers to the small village of Cruja, on the Albanian coast, which in the vernacular was called Troia. Harvesting is manual and takes place in the second week of October. After processing, the wine goes into large 30-hectolitre barrels, where it matures for about 24 months. It then finishes its ageing with another 12 months in the bottle. An extremely territorial wine, its colour is ruby red. The nose is astonishing for its scents of ripe fruit, spices and light toasting. In the mouth, however, it has a powerful structure and a nice freshness. Very persistent, it finishes with a very fine note of vanilla. A wine to be uncorked when the menu includes first and second courses, it is perfect in particular with grilled meats. For lovers of tradition, in Puglia it is often served with the classic orecchiette pasta with meat sauce, or with suckling pig with potatoes cooked under the ashes.

Since 1993, the year of their first harvest, the Di Tuccio family, the soul of the Antica Enotria company, has been cultivating their land with love. Preserving the tradition of taste, with a single objective: the genuineness of the products. This is why, right from the start of their adventure, they decided to obtain organic certification. After all, organic farming is a lifestyle choice for the family, not just a simple cultivation method. Just as the wine they produce is the result of a process that tells the story of the bond between man and land. Antica Enotria is located in Cerignola, Apulia. Here, a fortunate and unrepeatable mix of climatic conditions, soil and air allow the grapes grown in their vineyards, which extend from the hinterland almost to the sea, to reach full maturity. Aromas and flavours that are enhanced thanks to a careful selection process and to the modern processing cellar located inside the ancient Contessa Staffa farm, a noble building dating back to 1700.
