Why we love it

Another great example of a Montepulciano d’Abruzzo riserva, a red wine that shows the potential of the Montepulaicno grape when properly made. Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is possibly one of the most underrated Italian red wines; too often the name is associated to easy to drink, poorly made wines. However, the grape itself has all it needs to produce outstanding wines and there are several examples, it is down to the winemakers to decide which direction to take.

Ciavolich’s philosophy, like all our other producers, is to produce the very best from their grape and Antrum is the proof that not only the Montepulciano grape can make great wine but shows the passion they put into making wine.

Made from Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grapes grown in the oldest vineyards of the winery, manually harvested, the wine is left ageing for about 4 years in oak barrels before being bottled. The result is a very elegant Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, a meditation wine, a wine to sip and enjoy with friends and family, a celebration wine.

Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Antrum has a very complex nose with vanilla evolving into fruity notes, on the palate, is warm, smooth, soft tannins, velvety with a nice acidity, lively, and a never ending after finish. This wine can pair very important and rich courses, check our recipe section for ideas, or mature cheeses.

The artisan who made it

Nestled in the Abruzzo hills, facing the Adriatic sea, is the small town of Miglianico, is located the Ciavolich winery. Founded in the late 1950's, the Ciavolich winery is now jointly run by wife and husband Chiara and Gianluca. Abruzzo is largely known for the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, but they also grow native grapes such as Cococciola and Passerina, only found in the oldest wineries and in very small quantity.
