Regular price $11.00

The Nero di Troia grape is native to these rocky slopes above the Adriatic Sea, rumored to be planted by Trojan soldiers on their way home. Its inky dark fruit is rare in the wine world, and so held even more dear by the Pulglian cooperative that dedicates their efforts to vinifying native grapes. The brand "Grifo" refers to the symbolic Gryphon that stands guard over the community from the cathedral in Ruvo. All in all this wine is full of tribute and tradition.

The palate is lush with dark berry fruit and Mediterranean savory spices. The tannins are robust and structured, but finish gracefully. Give it a touch of air and this wine will turn satiny in your glass!

Food Ideas: lamb ragu, spicy fried eggplant, pastrami sandwiches, chargrilled veggies, beef and bean chilli
