Il Falcone is one of the most prestigious red wines of Apulia whose name was chosen by Rivera to remem-ber Emperor Frederick II of Swabia who built the castle called Castel del Monte near Andria so that he could indulge his passion for falconry. The castle later gave its name to the surrounding DOC area. The wine is obtained with carefully selected grapes sourced from the oldest among the estate’s vineyards. In the blend of indigenous grape varieties, the main grape, Nero di Troia, gives to the wine its great character and structure, while Montepulciano contributes to its roundness. The maturation for 14 months in oak and for a further year in the bottle contributes to refine its great structure and develop its classic personality and elegance.
Vino D.O.C. G. Primitivo di Manduria Dolce Naturale
La Dolce Vite è un vino dal colore rubino intenso con riflessi granati. Austero ed ampio nei sentori di frutta matura a bacca rossa, con lievi note mielate e speziate.
Avvolgente, vellutato, con una delicata percezione tannica ed una equilibrata acidità. L’espressione piena ed opulenta evoca ricordi di fichi secchi e frutta tostata.
Classico vino da meditazione.
Stempera e mitiga il salato dei formaggi di lunga stagionatura ed esalta le note piccanti di quelli erborinati.
Trova un armonioso connubio con la pasticceria secca e costruisce un forte legame con il cioccolato finissimo.
