Another of the enterprising Valentino Sciotti's projects, Tufarello is made by the Farnese winemaking team at their winery where Dennis Verdecchia is in charge with Alberto Antonini as a consultant. The wine is made from the Uva di Troia (also known as Nero di Troia) grape that is grown around Canosa di Puglia in southern Italy. The name attests to its Greek origins (Troy) and it is said to take its name from the nearby town of Troia, named by the Greek invader Diomedes.
Deep ruby red in colour with garnet highlights, the 2018 Vigneto Canosini has an intense, long-lasting and fruity perfume. It has great structure and well-balanced tannins.
