Wine maker notes
The uva or nero di Troia grape is one of Puglia’s oldest and most noble varieties. Used in decades past as a blending grape, it has recently become a star on its own as a monovarietal wine, exhibiting aromas and flavours of previously unsuspected richness and complexity.
Our nero di Troia is grown in the Minervino Murge area, in a naturally low-yield 25-year-old vineyard trained to spurred cordon. It yields a wine that consistently stands out for its elegance and personality; it boasts dense, fine-grained tannins and ease of pairing with food. A wine for wine-lovers.

Brothers Beniamino and Alberto, working together with a team of viticulturalists and oenologists, have created a modern winery highly respected throughout the world for the high quality of its wines and for its commitment to developing the full potential of local native grape varieties. The preservation of the ancient grapes, and careful utilisation of innovative winemaking practices, have turned Botromagno into a model winery, striving not only for the highest quality wine but respectful as well of its local environment and dedicated to the protection of the health of those who drink its wines.The history of our winery must be considered within the larger context of a unique area, known, for very good reason, as “The Other Puglia.”
Here the grapevine cultivation goes back 2,500 years.Frederick II of Swabia made this area his residence, calling it a “garden of delights,” and he contributed substantially to the development of local viticulture.
Against this rich cultural background, the D’Agostino family decided, in 1991, to re-launch the venerable Cantina Sociale, utilising expertise acquired in other fields, and fashioned it into a modern winemaking operation with ancient roots.
