In current #226 August 2016 issue of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate Rivera wines score extremely well according to Monica Larner’s judgment as “one of Puglia's headline wineries”.
In particular, IL FALCONE, Castel del Monte Riserva DOC 2010, ranks among Top 3 Puglia Wines with 93 pts and PRELUDIO N°1 Castel del Monte Chardonnay DOC 2015 among Top 3 Puglia Whites with 90 pts.
"Sebastiano de Corato's Rivera is experiencing an encouraging moment of rebirth. This has always been one of Puglia's headline wineries and their products are among the best in the region. A series of small tweaks and adjustments just made the wines even better. Rivera had long worked with consulting enologist Leonardo Palumbo who is credited with achieving the winery's high standards. Mr. Palumbo has since moved on to Torrevento and Rivera replaced him with Marco Bernabei. That new impetus is showing fine results and I was generally impressed with these wines across the board."

THE STAR WINES OF ‘GAMBERO ROSSO’ AND AT THE ‘CHINA WINE & SPIRITS AWARD’
SENATORE, DOC PRIMITIVO FROM GIOIA DEL COLLE - From the alcoholic fermentation on the skins Coppi gets the extraction of all the valuable substances contained in them: from fruity polyphenols all the way up to the tannins. Refinement is unhurried in 50 hl barrels of Slovenian oaks, preferably for a period of about 12 months. All this meticulous care, which begins in the vineyard with the harvest of grapes hand picked into individual crates, which creates the first form of the tasting pleasure. In the glass it is an intense red color with purple hues and evolves over time. The nose is quite intense and persistent, delicate, slightly spicy. The palate is dry, warm, soft, quite tannic and fruity with an alcohol content 13,50%.
DON ANTONIO, I.G.P. PUGLIA PRIMITIVO – A soft Primitivo from Gioia del Colle. This wine is the result of an innovative technique that involves firstly the carbonic maceration for 7-8 days, and secondly, the mallolactic fermentation in barrels of 100 hl Slovenian oak. The maturation then takes place in the same casks for 6 months, followed by at least a year spent to rest in the bottle. The result is immediately amazing, the nose has a richness of fruit with an intense and persistent aroma, fine, distinguished by a vein of spice derived from the oak and the grapes themselves. In the mouth it provides warmth yet it’s largely soft and harmonious.
