Origin: Castel del Monte, Andria, Puglia, Italy
Blend: nero di troia* (40%), cabernet sauvignon (10%), "other" (50%)
*uva di troia
Tasting notes: Ruby with purple highlights; bouquet of wild red berry fruit; smooth, fruity late, well balanced with subtly tannic finish.
Fresh and fruity red made from the assemblage of traditional varieties of the DOC Castel del Monte, including "Nero di Troia", and the international "Cabernet Sauvignon". The result is a wine very easy to drink that expresses a fresh bouquet and floral aroma with notes of black pepper and a pleasing and dynamic palate with a beautiful finish. Soups, pasta sauces and meats are the most appropriate combinations.
