About this wine

The origins of the name Nero di Troia are uncertain. Troia is a small village in the Puglia region, near where this wine is made. Furthermore, Troia is the Italian word for Troy in Ancient Greece and, just like a Trojan horse, hidden inside this humble box is a powerful, intensely fruity ruby red wine.

Meet the producer

La Cantina di Andria, known locally as "il Vignuolo", is a cooperative winery with 40 producers covering around 200 hectares, spread over the hills of the Castel del Monte region of Puglia. Right in the middle of the heel of Italy's boot, with plenty of sunshine and a stable climate thanks to the sea and the protection of the Apennine Mountains, this is perfect wine growing country.
