Canace Nero di Troia 2016
Opulent and flavoursome. One of the outstanding finds of the last couple of years this intense smoky Nero has become one of our most popular wines. Many customers tell us this is the best wine they have ever tasted. the combination of intense dark fruit chocolatey smoky complexity and generous ripeness make this an unalloyed treat.
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 a fresh acidity from the Aglianico, balanced with elegant tannins and lingering spice.
Left on the vine to partially dry, the grapes for this wine were not harvested until early November, giving it a powerful character and rich texture. Dark, liquorice-imbued fruits of the forest aromas alongside menthol and blueberry notes, almost medicinal. It is really rich on the palate with plummy, leathery flavours, macerated black cherries and even a hint of nectarine on the finish. Really gorgeous and complex but needs food to show it at its best.
