Rivera Il Falcone Riserva 2007 (Italy) Add to ...

  • Rating 90
  • Year 2007
  • Varietal Red blend
  • Food Pairing Steak
  • Price $22.95

This is a blend of 70-per-cent nero di Troia and 30-per-cent montepulciano, the latter a major grape of the Abruzzo region. It’s full-bodied and deeply flavoured, with a core of plum jam accented by vigorous spice. The tannins are still firm, giving the wine impressive structure. It should cellar well for up to eight more years or pair nicely with steak tonight. $24.45 in Que.
