Why we love it
The first time we tasted this Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, by pure chance, we were really surprised by its freshness despite the vintage, it smelled and tasted like a young montepulciano despite the years in the bottle but without any of the tannins you would expect in a young montepulciano.
This Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, made from grapes from two different vineyards, one on a hill, at a considerable height and one lower in the valley very close to the Adriatic sea, blend together acidity and ripeness, and fermented and aged in cement. The result is an outstanding Montepulciano d'Abruzzo with a big, fruity nose, with notes of blueberries and black cherry, and a very smooth and soft palate with a lovely acidity and great elegance.
This Montepulciano d'Abruzzo pairs perfectly tomato based pasta, charcuterie, pork dishes.
