Cantina Diomede is part of the Farnese Group and is based in northern Puglia, close to the town of Canosa...
It controls 200 hectares of vineyards. Consultant winemaker Filippo Baccalaro works closely with oenologists Massimo di Bari and Luca Pugliese to obtain high quality, healthy grapes. Most operations are carried out manually, and the management of the vineyard follows an organic approach.
Grapes for the Lama di Pietra are grown in the hills north of Bari between 350 and 450 metres above sea level. Soils are calcareous and clay, and vines are VSP and cordon spur pruned, with a density of 4500 per hectare.
As has been well documented, 2014 was a challenging year for winemakers across Italy due to the constant and unusual summer rains. Hard work, flexibility and total commitment were needed in the vineyard to produce the desired quality, and the grapes that ripened well were from soils with good drainage. Fruit was picked in the second half of October.
Upon arrival at the winery, the fruit underwent a long maceration and fermentation took place at a controlled temperature with selected yeasts. The wine was matured for 10 months in stainless steel tanks before bottling.
Ruby in colour with violet reﬂections. Red fruit aromatics of mulberry and cherry give way to a soft palate with delicate tannins. Persistent, full-bodied and elegant, this Nero di Troia is perfectly balanced.
