Although the Montepulicano d'Abruzzo variety is grown all over Abruzzo, it is in the hilly territory of Colline Teramane that produces the best fruit. The grapes for this wine are grown in 40 year old south facing vineyards 250m above sea level. It is aged in barrels for 10 months, blended and then aged for a further six months in wooden vats. It remains in bottle for a further 6 months before release.
A fabulous red ruby colour with garnet highlights, this Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is intense and persistent, with spicy aromas, hints of chocolate and tar. The dominant flavour, however, on both the nose and palate, is the copious fruit. This wine boasts good structure, tannins and a reassuring balance.
