Rivera Il Falcone Castel Del Monte 2013 Riserva a great value Puglia red blend, medium-plus-bodied with ripe mulberry, blueberry and fresh sage herbs, anise and meaty flavours on the palate. Pair with gourmet burgers topped with blue cheese. Enjoy now and for the next 15 years. - Community Wine Reviews
