Representing a blend of 70% Nero di Troia and 30% Montepulciano, the 2010 Castel del Monte Riserva Il Falcone is a delicious edition with all the intensity and opulence you should expect of Puglia. Yet, it boasts a level of depth and elegance that comes as an unexpected surprise. Il Falcone is a wine with tight lines, plenty of dark fruit, spice and tobacco. Its personalty is savory and dark. The wine ages in both large and small oak vessels for 14 months. - Monica Larner

This elegant red is beautifully fragrant, with star anise, ripe black cherry and licorice notes, showing accents of leather, dried thyme and orange peel. Finely meshed and fresh, this medium-bodied red layers supple tannins and a minerally undertow that expands on the lingering finish. Nero di Troia with other local varieties. Drink now through 2026. 9,000 cases made. –AN
