The most recent and fresh vintage of the hugely popular Biancardi wines. Our 5th vintage here at JN Wine and increasing in popularity daily, with both Italian wine fans and indeed people just seeking an easy going yet engaging glass of red wine. Michele Biancardi is committed to producing wines which are distinctive and represent the terroir of Puglia. Three varieties of indigenous grapes are grown in his vineyards, Fiano, Primitivo and Nero di Troia. The harvesting of the grapes is done by hand. Where oak ageing is carried out in the vineyard it is done in large barrels rather than barrique, as Michelle wants the natural grape flavours to dominate.
The Primitivo grapes used in this wine are harvested in late August whilst the Nero di Troia is picked in late September. Only the best grapes are chosen. The grapes then undergo de-stemming and a light pressing. The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks for 6-8 months and then aged in bottle for at least 2 months before it is released. The result is a wine that is robust and jammy, with hints of tobacco, mocha and supple, dark berry fruit.
Try with pizza, sausage and tomato based sauce dishes or simply on its own; the versatility of this wine is one of its most appealing traits!
Organic and simply delicious.
