A complex wine, elegant and austere that signifies the great potential of the "Nero di Troia" (about 70%), the main indigenous variety of the DOC Castel del Monte, that provides its essence, character and elegance, combined with other local varieties that provide to its harmony. Aged in French oak for at least 14 months and for a further year in bottle, goes well with red meats, game and mature cheeses. Well-preserved, shows great aging capacity.

Wine SpectatorThis elegant red is beautifully fragrant, with star anise, ripe black cherry and licorice notes, showing accents of leather, dried thyme and orange peel. Finely meshed and fresh, this medium-bodied red layers supple tannins and a minerally undertow that expands on the lingering finish. Nero di Troia with other local varieties. Drink now through 2026. 9,000 cases made.
