Montepulciano d’Abruzzo


It originates from one of the most suitable areas of Abruzzo for growing wine, from an old vineyard trained with the Tendon-system, at an ideal altitude to ensure a formidable thermal excursion and with a magnificent exposure.

The wine-making process occurs in thermo-conditioned steel tanks, followed by malolactic fermentation and subsequent maturation for 6 months in cement vats. Further 18 months in large 50hl casks, before being bottled in the total absence of oxygen and 6 more months of aging.

It takes some time for this wine to open up and reveal itself. That’s why we recommend opening it a little before enjoying it, at a temperature between 16 and 18 degrees, in a large glass with a wide rim.

It is excellent with well-structured and tasty dishes: aperitifs, starters, first courses, vegetarian food, red meat, and medium and long matured cheeses.

An Italian-style starter, pasta alla carbonara, barbecued leg of lamb, omelette with livers, or a mature pecorino from Abruzzo.

We have paired it with a baked Camembert.


Grape variety characteristics

The vine has found wide diffusion in Abruzzo and along the Adriatic coast. The variety is fairly homogeneous, the differential characters concern the shape of the bunch, the presence of green millerandage before maturation, the ripening time, and the organoleptic characteristics of the product.

It gives an intense ruby red colored wine, with a characteristic, vinous scent, dry, fruity, tannic, not acidic, of good body structure, velvety, rightly alcoholic.
