Nero di Troia

Puer Apuliae or “Son of Apulia”: so was called Frederick II of Swabia, the 13th century Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire who loved this region so much to make it his summer residence and building the majestic "Castel del Monte", leaving an indelible memorial for all mankind. Thus, Puer Apuliae,gets its name from being the child of the most representative indigenous black grape variety in central Apulia: "Nero di Troia". It is a wine of considerable character and style, obtained from an almost-forgotten small-berried clone of Nero di Troia selected in Rivera’s oldest vineyards, Tafuri.

Modern-style vinification and ageing in new barriques have enabled us to make a wine in which the typical aromas of this variety, violets and star anise, are strongly present, supported by a really full-bodied palate.

Product category: Puglia


"Pungirosa" enhances the characteristics of the variety Bombino Nero, the most typical of Castel del Monte's area and most appropriate for the production of rosé wines so much to merit the a DOCG appellation. A short maceration on the skins at low temperature extracting the color and the more delicate aromatics resulting in a fresh and juicy wine, with hints of wild strawberries and a soft palate from the beautiful grain mineral. Very easy to match with food, a real all rounder perfect as an aperitif.

Company details

The de Corato family roots go deep into the agriculture of Puglia. Here, in the countryside of Andria, Sebastiano de Corato founded the Azienda Vinicola Rivera in the late 1940s, inspired by a vision of realising, and bringing to the world’s attention, the enormous viticultural potential of the Castel del Monte area.

Widespread recognition quickly followed and since then  Rivera, has become the benchmark of Puglia quality wine production and the force driving its rebirth, thanks also to innovations in both vineyards and winemaking introduced since the early 1980s by his son Carlo.

Today, with the involvement of the third generation of the family represented by Carlo’s sons Sebastiano and Marco, Rivera continues with pride and renewed commitment the production of wines that eloquently express the intense yet elegant character of this land and its native grape varieties.

The winery’s winemaking philosophy is rigorously applied to every step of the process: vineyard management, grape harvest, winemaking, maturation and bottling; the most up-to-date viticultural and oenological practices are married to the deepest respect for natural processes, with all activities focused on achieving environmental and economic sustainability and on continuous improvement in quality.
