Torre Quarto Bottaccia Nero Di Troia 2005 IGT

This 100% Nero Di Troia (black grape of Troia, also known as Uva di Troia) is indigenous to the Puglia region of Italy, and makes for a wine with very earthy mineral undertones. The color is dark ruby with copper around the edges, medium to heavy weight, on the nose are super ripe cherries, with extremely balanced flavors. This is a proud wine with elegance and sophistication and improved within an hour of decanting. A big thank you goes out to the guys at In Vino for the recommendation.
