Rivera Il Falcone 1500ml (1500ml)
Sebastiano de Corato founded the Azienda Vinicola Rivera in the late 1940s. He saw enormous viticulture potential in Puglia’s Castel Del Monte region and wanted to bring these wines to the attention of the rest of Italy and abroad. Today the estate is still proudly operated by members of the de Corato family.
A blend of 70% Nero di Troia and 30% other local varieties aged 14 months in 50% French oak barriques and 50% 30-hl French oak followed by 12 months maturation in bottle before release. The wine offers a multi-layered bouquet of ripe wild red berry fruit, leather, pipe tobacco and spice. The palate is rich and structured with good length and balance.
