The Rupìcolo is a red wine obtained with a careful vinification of the indigenous red grape varieties of the Castel del Monte doc area, mainly Nero di Troia, with the international varietal Cabernet Sauvignon. The result is a full bodied wine with an aromatic bouquet of wild red berry fruit; smooth, fruity palate well balanced with subtly tannic finish. Fresh, pleasant all-around red wine.
Aging: 9 months in glass-lined cement vats.
Winemaking: Maceration at 24°C for 6-7 days with frequent pump overs
Food Pairing: It perfectly complements earthy soups, pastas and meats.
