3 Top Puglian Wines in the U.S. Market On my recent trip to Puglia, I found the wines made with the Nero di Troia (aka Uva di Troia) grape were the most interesting and appealing wines for my palate.

Many of these wines are not yet available in the U.S., so there’s an opportunity there for a smart importer or retailer. Several Nero di Troia wines that are available in the U.S. were not included in this tasting and I certainly recommend that interested readers seek examples out. At their best, these wines are full of wild berry fruit with aromatic floral, spice and herb tones. The wines are generally well balanced with tannins that can be aggressive but rarely seem to be extreme.

Nero di Troia is fairly easy to pair with food. It’s pleasantly aromatic but not overpoweringly flavorful, perfect for matching with lamb, goat and game. The lighter-bodied versions make a fine partner for pasta dishes that are assertively flavored with olives, sharp cheeses, or dried meats.
