This extraordinary wine is made solely from grapes of Uva di Troia, also called Nero di Troia, a vineyard that, according to the experts, comes from Asia Minor and has been imported in Puglia by the ancient Greeks. The production area is situated around the village of Cerignola in the Foggia region and harvest takes place towards the end of October. Following crushing the must is left to ferment on the skins for a period of 10 days maximum. The wine is then aged in French barriques for approximately ten months and another two month in bottle to harmonize its components before release. It has a ruby red colour with violet reflections. Its intense fragrance brings wild berries and chocolate to mind. In the mouth it is warm, full bodied and fairly tannic.

The producer

Torre Quarto is a company full of history and culture. It was part of one of the largest estates in Italy: 5000 hectares of which 2300 were vineyards. The estate was granted in 1418 to the Caracciolo family by Queen Giovanna d’Angiò Durazzo, it passed from the Caracciolo family in 1616 to the Pignatelli’s, in 1809 was inherited by the Duchess Montieu de Montmorency, and then by the nephews of Rochefoucauld. Having found in the region of Cerignola the optimal characteristics for quality viticulture, the Dukes of Rochefoucauld built a marvellous cellar, one of the best of Puglia, with communicating stone and travertine naves, which was deep, tall and arranged on various levels as the great French wineries. The cellar was linked to the Cerignola station with a private railway which transported the Dukes’ wine to France where it was used as blending wine. It wasn’t until the 30s when the Italian-Belgium family Cirillo Farrusi Bautier Solvay entered, that the marketing of the wine began with great success. It was no longer a blending wine but a noble wine. Today the youngest heir of Cirillo Farrusi, Stefano, has restructured the antique cellar with great enthusiasm, by equipping it with modern plants of vinification and with avant-garde criteria, in order to preserve this ancient tradition of prestige and to emphasize the territory and the autochthonous vineyards.
