Rivera Il Falcone Castel del Monte Rosso Riserva 2014

Puglia, ItalyA mix of nero di Troia and montepulciano, this Apulian red is a local legend aged 14 months in large and small oak and further aged another year in the bottle at the winery. The attack is busy with gamey, savoury red and black plum that spills onto the palate to mix with licorice and spicy tobacco. The finish is Italian dry. I suggest you serve it with rich, rustic winter fare or mature cheeses, and decant it for as long as you can before dinner.Tasted: 18 October 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 29.99 BCLS Producer: Azienda Vinicola Rivera S.P.A.Distributors: Icon Fine Wine and Spirits
