"The red wines of northern Puglia are predominantly of Nero di Troia (sometimes called Uva di Troia), and are completely different from those of the south of Puglia, which is hotter and dominated by Negroamaro, Malvasia Nera and Primitivo. Uva di Troia is a semi-aromatic red variety, a little like Frappato in that sense, and shows deep color, strongly floral/fruity nose, same notes on the palate but with fresh acidity and chewy tannins to balance. I would drink this Uva di Troia with red meats, substantial pasta dishes, and cheeses."
