Product description

Vineyard: Abruzzo is located halfway down the Italian peninsula, across the Apennine range east of Rome. In the wine world, Abruzzo is best known as the home of the Montepulciano grape.

Vinification: The grapes, are softly pressed in cylinders under pressure gently breaking their skins and releasing the juice. The must macerates on the skins for about a week in stainless steel vinifiers at a temperature of about 28° - 30° C. After the alcoholic fermentation is over, the wine undergoes also the malolactic fermentation, a process that lowers total acidity and makes wines seem rounder and fuller in flavour. The wine is then placed to age in large Slavonian oak casks.

Tasting Notes: Brilliant, attractive and warm ruby-red colour with a broad bouquet, with well-defined scents of bitter almonds against a faint background of wild berries. In the mouth is smooth, full-bodied with notable personality and outstanding persistence.

Paired with: The wine can be consumed throughout a meal and makes a particularly fine accompaniment for tasty pasta dishes, risottos, grilled red meat and cheeses that have been aged for moderate to long periods

Served at: 18° - 20° C

Ageing potential: 3 years.
