About the wine

Montepulciano is one of Italy's most widely planted grape varieties. A fabulous red ruby color with garnet highlights, this Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is intense and persistent, with spicy aromas and hints of chocolate and tar. The dominant flavour, however, on both the nose and palate, is fruit. This wine boasts good structure, tannins and a reassuring balance.

During the first few days, fermentation takes place at a low temperature, allowing a good extraction of polyphenols, responsible for the red colour of the wine. The wine subsequently undergoes malolactic fermentation, before a period of refinement in American wood barriques lasting about 6 months (60% French oak - 40% American oak barrique).

About the wine

Best served with rich main courses such as roasted or stewed meats and typical Abruzzese salami. (/p>
