Conte Di Campiano Nero di Troia 2015

$60.00
The Nero di Troia is a grape well suited to making wines for long ageing. It had more freshness and finesse than its regional stablemates Primitivo and Negro Amaro, it offers blackcurrant, black pepper, tobacco, is super silky and relatively high in acidity backed by plenty of fine tannins. Until recent times it was considered best for blending, with Negro, Primitivo or Montepulciano but since the discovery of a smaller berried clone it’s rightly being lauded as an exceptional variety in its own right. We love it.

Conte is located in a small town on a hilltop in the north – east of Verona with origins in late 1950’s. The winery sources fruit from a large number of different regions and produces a stack of different wines, too many to mention here. We decided to start by importing just one, from one of the rarest varieties – Susumaniello. We’ve now added a Primitivo di Manduria and a Squinzano Riserva (100% Negroamaro). Both are excellent, age-worthy wines.

Single Italian star becomes a compelling trilogy. Matt stumbled across Conte di Campiano during his visit to Prowein last year and found their amazing Susumaniello - a wonderfully decadent, full bodied, plush and complex red wine made from one of the world’s rarest varieties – Susumaniello. The word itself comes from Susu meaning “Go” and Maniello, meaning “Donkey” perhaps because in their youth, Susumaniello vines produce massive yields. As the vines age the yield reduced dramatically, increasing the concentration and depth of flavour in the finished wines. The Susumaniello is a big, black wine, bordering on mass ...

Our Italian Imports have landed!

We tasted hundreds of wines earlier this year at the massive German Trade wine fair, Prowein, at the Italian wine expo Vinitaly and throughout various Italian wine regions. Overseas we tasted and reviewed the wines at least twice and then we did it all again as a panel back in Australia, tasting and reviewing the best wines from those shortlisted for consideration. We settled on a very select few - just the 17 superb wines which are now in stock. Drum roll please…

Here’s a little info on each of the wineries from which we have chosen to import these beautiful wines:

Ca’ de Lion is a boutique producer which has been based in the Piedmont since 1655, making wine for many, many years. We’ve chosen to start with two of their brilliant Barberas from Asti. These are exceptional examples of Barb

Single Italian star becomes a compelling trilogy. Matt stumbled across Conte di Campiano during his visit to Prowein last year and found their amazing Susumaniello - a wonderfully decadent, full bodied, plush and complex red wine made from one of the world’s rarest varieties – Susumaniello. The word itself comes from Susu meaning “Go” and Maniello, meaning “Donkey” perhaps because in their youth, Susumaniello vines produce massive yields. As the vines age the yield reduced dramatically, increasing the concentration and depth of flavour in the finished wines. The Susumaniello is a big, black wine, bordering on massive. The nose offers a tremendously complex blend of blueberries, flowers, chocolate, spice, dried herbs and cedar and woodsmoke. These can also be tasted along with sour cherries, blackberries and darker stuff. It is voluptuously textured and deep. It struts the line beautifully between fresh zippy fruit and aching decadence.

Moroccan meatballs, tagine of caramelised onions and eggplant with roasted cauliflower
Moroccan flavours are some of my favourite. Generally, in common with Italian, Indian and many other cuisines, the food choices depend on what's local, in season and cheap. Moroccan food for me has the perfect blend of exciting spices and aromas, fresh herbs and accompaniments and the permission to make food organically sweet.
