Tufarello Nero di Troia Puglia IGP

2015

In a Nutshell

Rich and chunky - crying out for a stew!

Tasting Notes

Deep dark red in colour with a dark purple core, the 2014 is a wine bursting with blueberry fruit and spice on the nose. There is a touch of sour cherry on the palate, boosted by powerful blackberry and dark plums and a chunky, fruit-packed finish.

Production Notes

On arrival at the winery the grapes were destemmed and gently crushed before fermentation and maceration on the skins in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks between 30-32°C. Regular, gentle pumping over took place for around two weeks, with the must being tasted every day to ensure the tannins levels were not too high. The wine saw a limited amount of oak treatment to soften the natural grape tannins but Alberto wanted to preserve the quality of the fruit so used very little oak on the wine.
