Puglia's treasured Nero di Troia grape is steeped in legend. From the super-talented Mario Ercolino, this deep, dark NEW red is full of southern warmth. A winner (Berliner Wein Trophy) with rich pasta dishes or mature cheeses.

This 2011 Corsiero Nero is an example of why we like WSJ wine so much. It was a new grape for us and a wonderul discovery! It poured a very dark purple color and on the nose we found warm blackberry notes. Upon tasting, we appreciated hints of blueberries and tea with supple tannins. Overall we highly recommend as an outstanding value.
We just opened this gem tonight and it is so good that I had to write a review! Delicious, dark, fruity flavor; satisfyingly rich and smooth! Wonderful as an accompaniment to food as well as on its own. Plus. It is a true bargain! A definite favorite!
I'm not a fan of many Italian wines because of the clove-y, almost medicinal taste they have. This one did not even have a hint of that awful taste. It was actually very good and I enjoyed it tremendously.
Opening with a sharp bite is initially disapointing...but, decant and serve after a half hour or so and it smooths out to an interesting complex and delightful Italian character... Great with lasagna or rich spicy red pastas...
A different Italian wine...

Many wines from Puglia are a bit on the rough side. This Nero is refined, with lots of berry and restrained tannins. It's medium bodied so don't expect something like a big, inky cab. A very nice bottle of wine at an affordable price
