Rivera Rupicolo Castel del Monte, Puglia, Italy label

Winery Quote:

“Wine Notes
Indicative blend: Predominantly Montepulciano with Nero di Troia
  • This is among the top 10 most highly rated Castel del Monte wines (based on critic scores).
  • This is the sixth most searched for among this region’s wines (by Wine-Searcher users). Greater numbers of users have been searching for this wine compared to a year ago.
  • This is more affordable than many Castel del Monte wines. The price has been stable over the past year.”
  • Topper’s Notes: I was surprised at the addition of Nero Di Troia and Cabernet Sauvignon and the difference those varietals played in the flavor profile. The nose displays ample aromas of plum, black raspberry and pepper. The mid-palate is full-bodied, with medium tannin and acidity for support. The finish is full and long lasting on the palate.
