Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC
100% Montepulciano d'Abruzzo
A short cryomaceration (holding crushed fruit at a low temperature prior to fermentation) is made once the grapes are selected and derasped. The skins are kept in contact with the must at a controlled temperature of 28°C (82°F) for about 25-30days. While the must is in contact with the skins, periodic delestage (rack and return) is performed to achieve a good fruit, soft tannins and stable color.
This wine has an intense red color, the bouquet is rich with a scent of violets and licorice. On the palate it offers cherry flavors and blackberry, in addition to dark chocolate and chili-like spice. The finish is smooth and solid. It's an excellent balanced wine with a lasting finish.
