About the Producer
Another of the enterprising Valentino Sciotti's projects, Tufarello is made by the Farnese winemaking team at their winery where Dennis Verdecchia is in charge with Alberto Antonini as consultant. The wine is made from the Uva di Troia (also known as Nero di Troia) grape that is grown around Canosa di Puglia in southern Italy. The name attests to its Greek origins (Troy) and it is said to take its name from the nearby town of Troia, named by the Greek invader Diomedes.
Vineyard and Winery
Canosini is an old, 30 hectare, bush-trained vineyard which produces fruit of outstanding quality. On the right bank of the Ofanto river, the area lies nearly 20 kilometres from the Adriatic Sea between 105 and 140 metres above sea level.
On arrival at the winery, the grapes were destemmed and gently crushed before fermentation and maceration on the skins in stainless steel tanks between 30-32°C for 15 days. After fermentation, the wine was aged in barriques for four months.
