Tasting Notes 

Ruby in colour with violet reflections. Red fruit aromatics of mulberry and cherry give way to a soft palate with delicate tannins. Persistent, full-bodied and elegant, this Nero di Troia is perfectly balanced.

Grape variety: Nero di Troia.

Vineyards: Grapes for the Lama di Pietra are grown in the hills north of Bari between 350 and 450 metres above sea level. Soils are calcareous clay, and vines are VSP (vertical shoot positioning) and cordon spur pruned, with a density of 4,500 vines per hectare.

Vinification: Upon arrival at the winery, the fruit underwent a long maceration and fermentation took place at a controlled temperature with selected yeasts. The wine was matured for 10 months in stainless steel tanks before bottling.
