The grape Nero di Troia (also called Uva di Troia) is autoctonous of Puglia, a dark ruby fruit that is intensily dark to appear as black / nero. In terms of vineyard area (approx. 1,800 hectares) Nero di Troia is the third most important of Puglia’s native black grape vines after Negroamaro and Primitivo.
If Negroamaro, grown in the provinces of Brindisi and Lecce, is the most important of all the denominations of origin in the Salento and Primitivo identifies the labels produced in the province of Taranto, Nero di Troia has its ideal terroir in the province of Foggia and in the northern part of the province of Bari. This trio of black grape varieties express all the rich diversity of Puglia’s wine-growing sector.
In terms of development (growth process) the variety can be defined as late, especially in relation to the ripening of the grapes (from mid- to late October). This differentiates Nero di Troia from Puglia’s two other black grape varieties - Negroamaro and especially Primitivo - which ripen decidedly earlier (Primitivo at the end of August and Negroamaro in mid-September).
