rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Taut, structured, a serious wine defined by blackberry fruit, spice, oak, and a hint of pepper. I'm 91 on this. (ottawawinejournal.com)
Torre del Falco is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon supported by Nero di Troia. This is another entry-level wine; it’s deep pigeon blood ruby with cherry rim, and has a direct, fairly rich bouquet with jammy red berry fruit supported by some spice and hints of caramel from the grapes (no wood). On the palate it’s medium bodied, with fairly rich dry cherry fruit supported by underbrush and moderate acidity, while there is also considerable graphite bitterness in the tannins that’s typical of Nero di Troia, and provides both backbone and depth. Direct, up front, and will drink nicely. A wine that doesn’t demand attention, but rather supports what it’s served with, and will go quickly. Source: Kyle Phillips, Italian Wine Review
