Nero di Troia
Castel del Monte Rosso Riserva D.O.C.G. Riserva

Il Falcone is one of the most prestigious red wines of Apulia whose name was chosen by Rivera to remember Emperor Frederick II of Swabia who built the castle called Castel del Monte near Andria so that he could indulge his passion for falcony. The castle later gave its name to the surrounding DOC and DOCG area. The wine is obtained with carefully selected grapes sourced from the oldest among the estate’s vineyards. In the blend of indigenous grape varieties, the main grape, Nero di Troia, gives to the wine its great character and structure, while Montepulciano contributes to its roundness. The maturation for 14 months in oak and for a further year in the bottle contributes to refine its great structure and develop its classic personality and elegance.
