Was created in 2005, By Gaspare De Luca and his wife, with the aim to introduce regional products, into the British market. Following a big experience matured in the industry and the big buying power generated, Gaspare & Nathalie have decided to expand their warehouse and offer their products to wholesale & distribution.
Introduced onto the hills of the Roero in the early 1900s, the Barbera vine’s hardiness and constant yield made it ideal as a replacement for many of the vineyards decimated by the phylloxera pest. Its matching of strenght with finesse makes Barbera d’Alba a highly-prized wine, and the composition of the soil and microclimate here produces an intensely bright red-coloured wine with delicate purple higlights, and a fresh, fragrant nose hinting at mint and vanilla. A big wine with good structure.

The Nero di Troia has a thick skin, highly rich in polyphenols, and a moderate sugary potential, which allow for a late vintage and a more complete ripening, generating wines of intense colour and very smooth tannins, for a silky mouthfeel. The colour is deep and vivid, the bouquet is refined and fresh, with typical notes of violet enriched by spicy undertones, while the palate is well-structured, with an excellent inclination for ageing.
Made from Nebbiolo grapes grown on vineyards in Barbaresco, Neive, Treiso and Alba. Fermentations with lenghty stays on the skins followed by ageing in oak casks produce an intensely red wine with slight hints of garnet, a complex nose of ripe red fruit and spicy overtones, and a warm, mouth-filling flavour with soft tannins, greta elegance and an excellent finish.
