Sogno di Volpe Rosato
Nero di Troia (nair-oh dee troy-uh)
Sogno di Volpe translates to ‘The Fox’s Dream’ and the name was inspired by a famous childhood fable called ‘The Fox and the Grapes’, which was written in the 1st century AD by the Greek writer Fedro. The fox in the story fails to reach the grapes that he desires and claims he will try again when the grapes are ‘more ripe’. The fairy tale teaches us that we should not lessen the goals we cannot reach right away.
Nero di Troia is a red grape variety found almost exclusively in Puglia and plays a significant role in several wine appellations there. This Nero di Troia is fermented in stainless steel and left to macerate on the skins for a brief 2 hours to extract color. Enjoy this wine with a burger, BBQ, pizza, pasta with meat sauces, pulled pork sandwiches, shrimp cocktail, salads with vinaigrettes, salmon, and hard cheeses.
