"Il Falcone" Castel del Monte Riserva DOC 2015 - Rivera

Among the flagship wines of the Rivera winery, Falcone is an impressive Castel del Monte Rosso Riserva DOCG. A complex, elegant and austere wine, it is one of the best expressions of the typical Nero di Troia, which represents about 70% of the blend. This interesting native of the Castel del Monte area is able to give the wine structure, character and elegance. Other local varieties contribute to its harmoniousness. Matured in French oak for at least 14 months, 50% in barriques and 50% in 30 hectolitre barrels, it is aged for a further year in bottles before being released for sale. In the glass it has a beautiful, dense garnet red colour. Its bouquet is complex, with notes of ripe red fruit, leather, tobacco and spices. In the mouth it is rich, full, austere, long and balanced. A wine capable of aging, and well, for many years. Properly stored, it has no difficulty in waiting more than 10-15 years in the cellar. An important and complex wine, on the table it requires a certain type of combination. Excellent with game, it can also be paired with a well-aged cheese.

There was a time when Puglia was considered Italy's reservoir of mediocre wines. Mostly powerful and alcoholic reds, often used to give a helping hand to the delicate wines of northern Italy, which were more drained in terms of colour and alcohol. Once upon a time, indeed. Because today Puglia can boast of an important level of quality in its wines, capable of competing on equal terms on the main markets throughout the world. One of the protagonists of this Apulian 'Renaissance' is undoubtedly the Rivera winery. Founded at the end of the 1940s, for many experts and enthusiasts it is the very symbol of this rebirth. As a family business, it has always been committed to promoting its territory. Thanks to a successful "quality project" that starts with the careful management of the 75 hectares of vineyards, according to sustainable farming protocols. Modern, espalier-trained vineyards are cultivated with the main native varieties of the area, such as Bombino Bianco, Bombino Nero, Nero di Troia, Fiano, Aglianico and Moscato Reale. But also international, such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon.

    A blend of 70% Nero di Troia and 30% Montepulciano, this rich red starts off with a dense nose of tobacco, violet, plums and cherries. It's plush and supple on the palate, but properly supported by polished tannins and tense acidity. The redfruit flavors are pure and pulsing, with spice and herbal tones integrating nicely on the lingering finish. ALEXANDER PEARTREE
