Why we love it
The Montepulciano D’Abruzzo Divus is a great red wine, a fantastic example of what the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grape can produce. This red wine is made with grapes from the oldest vineyard of the winery, aged in barrels for about one year to add complexity and life to the wine.
This Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is elegant, complex with hints of liquorice and black pepper, smooth and lively. It can pair perfectly lamb, grilled meat and 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.
