A rare taste of Nero di Troia, one of Puglia’s finest grapes, more often found in pricey DOC blends, but here solo in all its glory. Made by top Italian winemaker Mario Ercolino, this 94 point red is full of wild blackberry, violet and smoky vanilla.

The Barbanera family and top consultant Mario Ercolino have discovered just how to get the most from the superb Nero di Troia grape. The result is the deliciously dark, velvety Corsiero. No need to blend Nero di Troia with softer varieties – gently pressed and carefully vinified, it makes a seductively deeply flavoured, fruit rich, aromatic red. Nero di Troia is named after the town of Troia in northern Puglia, said to have been founded by Greek hero Diomedes, famous for helping to defeat the city of Troy in Asia Minor. Just outside Troia, the story goes, Diomedes planted vine cuttings named Nero after their dark skinned grapes and the deep coloured wine they produced. Rich, warming Corsiero is perfect with pasta or hearty meat dishes.
