Why we love it

It took Nicodemi five harvests for the wine to be finally bottle, five years of experimentation and the 2021 harvest is the first vintage to be released. The Montepulciano grapes are selected from an old vineyard, 50+ years, and a very low yield trained with the traditional Abruzzo pergola, the wine is then fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged for 12 months in cocciopesto amphorae.

The cocciopesto, as opposed to wood, do not add any aroma to the wine, still softening and smoothing the tannins. This is a great Montepulciano where the fruit is the only protagonist. Fruity, elegant and with a long finish, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Cocciopesto is produced in very limited quantity and only when the vintage allows it.

Montepulciano D'Abruzzo Cocciopesto pairs beautifully aged cheeses. roasts and game or traditional Abruzzo dishes such as "cacio e ove".
