More information
Castel del Monte - the octagonal hunting lodge of Frederick II stands in the northernmost part of Murgia, is a World Heritage Site and widely known in Italy. This iconic structure graces the back of the 1-cent coin, served as the model for the backdrop of the library tower in the hit movie "The Name of the Rose", and also appears in the logo of the Torrevento winery.
The grapes for the Vigna Pedale come from vines that are more than 30 years old and thrive on the poor, stony soils in the Murgia region - quite a few even within sight of the Castel del Monte. The vines, cultivated in the "Alberello" bush form system, allow only a few grapes.
Puglia is one of the most important regions for the Uva di Troia variety. Originally, this variety of wine came from Greece and has been planted here for over 3,000 years. This grape variety, also known as Nero di Troia, is used for the varietal Vigna Pedale.
More important than the Castel del Monte, which can be seen from afar, however, is the monastery built in the 15th century for the Torrevento winery. This was acquired by Francesco Liantonio in 1948. Since then, the underground cellar vaults have been used for wine production.

The Vigna Pedale Castel del Monte Riserva DOCG from Torrevento is a real medal chaser. This single-varietal Nero di Troia from Apulia comes into the glass with a deep, ruby-red color. At the edges, this top wine turns into a delicate garnet red. The first nose of the Vigna Pedale from Torrevento promises wonderful spice of pepper, forest floor, mushrooms, undergrowth and all kinds of black berry fruits. Thyme and mineral nuances of the limestone-rich clay soil perfectly round off the bouquet of the Vigna Pedale.

On the palate, the flagship of Torrevento starts off wonderfully fleshy and grippy. A concentrated wine with considerable length and grippy, distinctive tannins that round out pleasantly with air without losing their profile. Again a nice balance of fruit and spice on the surprisingly long finish.

Vinification of the Torrevento Vigna Pedale Castel del Monte Riserva

The grapes come from the DOCG classified growing region Castel del Monte and originate from vineyards that are only a few hundred meters away from the sea. Thus, the climate moderated by the Adriatic Sea and, at the same time, the barren, mineral soil guarantee excellent grape material. After the harvest, the grapes are immediately taken to the winery and, after a further selection, are crushed. After a long maceration, fermentation starts in stainless steel tanks, followed by drawing off in stainless steel and 8 months of maturation. This is followed by a further 12 months in large oak barrels before the Vigna Pedale Castel del Monte from Torrevento is finally bottled.

Food recommendation for the Vigna Pedale by Torrevento

Enjoy this extraordinary red wine from Apulia with beef, juicy roasts, game, ripe hard cheese and salami.
