Wine maker notes
The uva or nero di Troia grape is one of Puglia’s oldest and most noble varieties. Used in decades past as a blending grape, it has recently become a star on its own as a monovarietal wine, exhibiting aromas and flavours of previously unsuspected richness and complexity.
Our nero di Troia is grown in the Minervino Murge area, in a naturally low-yield 25-year-old vineyard trained to spurred cordon. It yields a wine that consistently stands out for its elegance and personality; it boasts dense, fine-grained tannins and ease of pairing with food. A wine for wine-lovers.

Vineyard yield: 70 q/ha.

In 1991, the D”Agostino family merged with the local cooperative winery, creating Botromagno, the first successful example of a privately owned winery partnered with more than 100 local grape growers. The D”Agostino family has been able to foster a reliable and efficient synergy with the local farmers; based on strict standards for quality grape growing, they have rapidly become one of the finest wineries in Puglia.
