NOTES FROM OUR SOMMELIERS
👁 a beautiful ruby red;
👃🏻 the nose expresses a broad bouquet: fruity ( pomegranate above all), with pepper and undergrowth;
👄 on the palate it is intense, dense, tense and juicy, pleasantly savory, with a nice return, on the finish, of fruity notes perceived on the nose.
A wine with intense character that goes perfectly with Apulian meat cuisine: from stuffed guinea fowl, to sweet and sour lamb, to roast pork. In general, it is not afraid of tasty, sweet and sour or spicy preparations.
Pure Nero di troia, certified organically produced on espalier vineyards 200 meters above sea level. Overnight maceration and then racking. Spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts, in steel. No clarification or filtration.

TERRITORY OF ORIGIN
In the immense fields of the Tavoliere delle Puglie, among wheat, tomatoes and olive trees, the cultivation of vines plays a crucial role in the landscape and economy of the area.
Here the art of making wine has very ancient origins: the San Severo countryside is a land particularly suited to the cultivation of grapes thanks to the mild and windy climate and the conformation of the territory in which the plain alternates with gentle hilly slopes.
San Severo DOC was the first denomination of Puglia. If the whole region is a land with a great wine-growing tradition, one of the most important areas is the province of Foggia, where mainly bombino bianco, uva di Troia, montepulciano and falanghina are grown.
The white bombino, in particular, has been cultivated for a long time in Puglia, perhaps imported from Spain. The name derives from the shape of the bunch which resembles the shape of a child with outstretched arms. If, however, the origin of the name came from Spanish, bombino would derive from "bovine", meaning "good wine".
The vine is present in Puglia, especially in the Foggia area, and is included among the varieties suitable for the production of San Severo Doc.
We are in San Severo, in the province of Foggia.
Starting from a deep family bond with the agriculture of vineyards and olive trees, in 2010 Antonio Demaio began the renovation of an old farmhouse and in 2013 Tenuta Demaio was born with the transformation of the first grapes.
The winery had a tradition started by Antonio's grandfather, which was interrupted in the 70s with the advent of cooperatives: at that point the transformation activity was suspended in favor of agriculture. But for about ten years Antonio has concentrated all his energy on growing the company and starting producing wine and oil again.
The choice was immediately to use methods that respect the environment and the grapes, following the organic and traditional method, both in the vineyard and in the cellar.
Today Tenuta Demaio produces five labels with a completely respectful approach: as few phytosanitary interventions as possible, spontaneous fermentations in the cellar, no clarification or filtration, great attention to quality.
The estate consists of approximately 35 hectares of olive groves and vineyards.
