Cantine Le Grotte Nero di Troia Selva Della Rocca; Puglia, Italy
Cantine Le Grotte is located in Apricena, a town in the very northern reaches of Puglia, an area affectionately known as the spur of the boot of Italy. Their vineyards lie between the Adriatic Sea, the foothills of the Gargano National Park and the inland plateau of Foggia. Pasquale Dell’Erba founded the winery; their first vintage was 2013. Before even planting their first vines, though, they had to spend a year revitalizing and re-oxygenating the soil by digging up and then putting back in the same stony materials.

When winemaking tradition started in the 1950’s is passed from generation to generation and the dedication to preserve those characters of uniqueness is handed from mother to daughter.

This is the heart of the Roero, characterized by small, interweaving hills, yellow-ochre sandy soils full of marine fossils, and densely wooded areas dotted with vineyards.
