Paolo Petrilli Fortuita
Grapes: depends on the harvest - a combination of some or all of Nero di Troia, Aglianico, Montepulciano and Sangiovese
A wine born in 2007 when the Nero di Troia vine failed spectacularly, but Sangiovese and Montepulciano were fine and capable of making something interesting. Paolo then continued to make this wine as it is a handy entry level wine that is occasionally a little too good. We do not buy much, because we cannot – it is strictly allocated. Since 2010 the style of winemaking changed and declassified to Daunia IGT whilst the wine released has become unreasonably good.
Damson, clove and sloe on the nose, lithe tannin, mouth filling strawberry and black cherry fruit. 14.5%
