Primitivo: Of uncertain origin, its introduction intoApulia may perhaps be traced back to the Phoenician and Greek colonization. However, it should be pointed out that this selection was carried out within the “old local vineyards”; therefore, the vine was already known in the area during that time, since it could be found in old vineyards of the late 18th century. Primitivo is identical to Zinfandel.

Nero di Troia: This vine, among the oldest and most typical of central and northern Apulia, possibly originated in Asia Minor (Troy) and was perhaps introduced intoApulia during the Greek colonization. Otherwise, its name might be derived from the Apulian town ofTroia in theprovince of Foggia or from the Albanian town ofCruja, and then translated as Troia into the local dialect.
