Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC
Hand-harvested grapes are vinified in stainless steel tanks with a long maceration at a controlled temperature. The must is frequently pumped over to intensify the aromatics and the color. The wine is then finished in stainless steel tanks.
Deep ruby in color with purple highlights. Classic Montepulciano aromas of wild berry, dried herbs, and black pepper are framed by chewy tannin and bright acidity.
With a full body, yet mild tannins, this wine pairs well with a variety of foods, including sauce-based first courses, roasts and mixed grills, game and seasoned cheeses.
