Natalie's Score: 89/100
Loaded with black fruit, dark spice and meaty notes. This full-bodied southern Italian red wine was oak aged and is a great wine for the cellar. Pair with prime rib.
Food pairings: grilled pork sausage.

Reviews and Ratings
|Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A full-bodied red, with grippy tannins. It has layers of fruit on the nose and on the palate of dark, ripe blackberries, smoke, anise and cedar. A very pleasant round, luscious mouthfeel, but with enough tannins to handle a spicy meat pasta sauce. It could be kept in the cellar for a good ten plus years where it will likely soften nicely.
|Gwen Barton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Intense deep red colour. Cooked raspberry and strawberry on the nose quickly followed by coffee, chocolate and gentle earthiness with some burnt toffee. Enjoyed a gentle peppery and tannic finish. Leaves you feeling warm and happy. Try with roast chicken and herbed stuffing .
|Cora Beaulieu rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Intense dark and ruby in color. This blend has concentrated aromas of dark fruit (cherry and blackberry,) ripe plum, currant, typical cassis, licorice and savory spices. Beautiful tones of vanilla, dark roast coffee and wet earth lead the nose on this medium-full bodied wine. The warm and rich palate delivers blackberry, chocolate and roasted coffee bean. It is lush and plush with dark fruit finish. Definitely needs a juicy steak to compliment.
|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Dark fruits, plum, cedar, underbrush, and graphite on the nose. Dry with lots of fine tannins, the sweet dark and tangy fruit persists on the finish. Decant one hour prior to service and enjoy with braised dishes. Tasted January 2016. 88 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
|The 2012 vintages of the Castel del Monte Trentangeli is made with organically farmed grapes. It's been dubbed a "Super Puglian" much like the "Super Tuscans" in the north of the country for their power and concentration. This is a red wine blend of 70% Aglianico, 20% Cabernet and 10% Syrah grapes. Pair with a pepper steak. - Community Wine Reviews|
