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.
Dense garnet-red.
Multi-layered bouquet of ripe wild red berry fruit, leather, pipe tobacco and spice.
Rich palate, austere, very lengthy and well-balanced.

Pairing Its dense texture, complemented by barrel and bottle ageing, makes this wine the ideal complement to highly-seasoned dishes, such as full flavoured red meat, roasts, game, and meats with hearty sauces. Serve at cool room temperature, uncorking the bottle a half hour beforehand, or decanting the contents into a carafe to allow the wine to breathe.
