Vigna Pedale

Castel del Monte Riserva DOCG

Wine Type: Red Wine

Country: Italy

Region: Puglia

Grapes: Nero di Troia

Tasting Notes: Deep ruby red with garnet glints. On the nose it is intense, full and fragrant with hints of small red fruits. On the palate it is full-bodied and harmonious with spicy hints.

Food Pairings: Classic red, ideal to accompany red meats, roasts, game, aged cheeses and cold cuts.

James Suckling: “Smoky spice notes to the ripe raspberry fruit on the nose with hints of roast chestnuts and dried herbs. Medium-to full-bodied with fine, slightly dry tannins and a bright bead of plum-skin and raspberry fruit that together give a tight, fruity finish. Sustainable. Flavorful and fun, but a bit rough at the edges just now. Needs a bit more time to meld together. Try from 2023.”
