Right since the days of Frederick II, hunters would go about their business accompanied by birds of prey on the hills around Castel del Monte. Here amid the lush vineyards is the natural habitat of the lesser kestrel, a rare species that bears witness to a landscape unchanged over the centuries.
A skilful blend of Nero di Troia and Merlot grapes, ruby red in colour with purplish nuances, this is a fresh, fruity wine with a perfect balance and persistent aroma. Gracefully contoured, with hints of blackberry, morello cherry and small red fruits, combined with balsamic and vanilla notes. Firm, sophisticated, tannin-rich mouthfeel.
