Cantina Diomede Canace Nero Di Troia

Cantina Diomede Canace Nero Di Troia

Cantina Diomede, which controls 200 hectares of vineyard, is based in northern Puglia, close to the town of Canosa. Oenologists Luca Pugliese and Danilo Gizzi work hard to obtain high-quality, healthy grapes. Most operations are carried out manually, and the vineyards are farmed organically.

The 'Lama di Pietra', made solely from Nero di Troia, has red fruit aromatics and is full bodied yet perfectly balanced on the palate. The 'Canace' Nero di Troia is a step up. Aged for 12 months in large French oak barrels, this wine balances richness with a fresh acidity, velvety tannins and a spicy finish.

Vineyards

The name "Canace" comes from "blending" the initial syllables of the towns where the wineries are located - Canosa, in the hills north of Bari in the DOC Castel del Monte area, at 480 metres above sea level, and Acerenza in Basilicata. Soils are calcareous and rocky, and vines are Vertical Shoot Positioned and Guyot trained, with a density of 3,500 per hectare.

Vinification

Grapes were left to partially dry on the vines. Upon arrival at the winery, the fruit underwent a maceration of 15 to 20 days and fermentation took place at a controlled temperature with selected yeasts. The wine was vinified in concrete tanks, where it was kept for about eight months, followed by 12 months in large French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

Deep red in colour with hints of violet. The complex bouquet offers warm spices, cocoa, coffee, liquorice and ripe berry fruit. Soft and velvety on the palate, the full-bodied Canace has fresh acidity, which is balanced with elegant tannins and lingering spice.
