Il Sale della Terra
“Il Sale della Terra” Nero di Troia Puglia IGT is the wine that best presents the link between the Di Tuccio family and Apulia. With an intense ruby color, “Il Sale della Terra” is a wine of great balance and elegance with aromas of ripe fruit, spices and light toasting. On the palate it has a powerful structure supported by a beautiful freshness that accentuates the fruit. Very persistent, ending with a very fine vanilla note.
