Bottle size and vintage
DOC Castel del Monte produced with Nero di Troia and Aglianico grapes grown in vineyards at 450 meters above sea level, with cold winters and not too hot summers.

On the palate it is pleasant, full-bodied, harmonious, savory, and goes well with red meats, roasts, game, aged cheeses and salami.
- Optimum serving temperature:Between 16ºC and 18ºC
