Castel del Monte produces Puglia’s most sought-after reds. The wines are typically made from the Nero di Troia grape, with miserly yields that make for concentrated wines. And this Limited Edition Riserva is one of the finest. But don't take our word for it – Vigna Pedale has a stack of awards to its name.
This latest release has already earned 'Tre Bicchieri' from Gambero Rosso (that’s the highest accolade from Italy’s most trusted guide), 88 points from The Wine Advocate, and nods from two top international wine shows. It’s sure to be a big hit on your table, too.
Vigna Pedale is crafted by Torrevento, one of Puglia's top wineries, from fruit grown on vineyards 1,600 feet above sea level. Winemaker Francesco Liantonio – who was ranked No. 33 on Italy’s Wine Power 100 List – explains in more detail: “In summer we have temperature changes between day and night of 15-30°F. This gives freshness to the wine.” Since the Second World War, the Liantonio family have produced wines using time-honored, traditional methods. They have built a big reputation by specializing in Puglia’s indigenous grapes, like Nero di Troia.
This wine is medium- to full in body, with delicious dark fruit flavors, complemented by spicy notes from 12 months of aging in fine oak barrels. It will be perfect with roasted game dishes, mature cheeses, salami and more.
Hurry – very few cases of this hugely prized red were imported.
