Montepulciano is one of Italy's most widely planted grape varities. This wine is has lots to offer. Fruity, full-bodied and round on the palate with ripe plum and blackberry character. The fruit is balanced by lovely acidity and hints of spice and vanilla.
The vineyards are situated around the towns of Ortona, San Salvo and Pollutri on the Adriatic coast of the Abruzzo region. Facing south east, the vines are planted on a mix of clay and limestone soils and are trained on both Guyot and Pergola systems. Once the grapes arrive at the winery, they are gently crushed and destemmed. The grapes macerate at cold temperature for four days. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 24-26°C for 8-10 days.
An excellent wine to pair with cured meats, more robust starters, meat dishes and most cheeses.
The Caldora winery was born with quality in mind, as the ‘Progetto Qualita’ (quality project) of the cooperative Cantina Sociale di Ortona. Based in the Chieti province of Abruzzo, the larger cooperative has been working for many years, producing wines from over 1500 hectares of land cultivated by around 700 farmers. Continually striving to reduce their yield per hectare, thereby increasing the quality and concentration of each grape that enters the winery, the Progetto was established in 1999 to celebrate approximately 200 hectares of vineyard area, selected from a variety of the highest-quality terroirs, which provided fruit that consistently passes the most rigorous of quality checks.
