Castel del Monte Wine Information
Castel del Monte is a wine region in Apulia, Italy, known for its reds. The name "Castel del Monte" comes from a huge castle built by Emperor Frederick II, in the shape of an octagon.
It uses mainly Uva di Troia as the red grape, also using pinot noir, sangiovese, montepulciano and aglianico grapes. The wines tend to be gentle and soft, full with cherry and blackberry flavors. The region produces around 3.4 million bottles of wine annually.
The region does also produce white wines and rose wines, but they are not as highly regarded.
