The 2008 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is a tasty red. Dark fruit, leather, licorice and tobacco flow from this generous, plump Montepulciano. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016.
|Wine maker notes
|The organic Montepulciano grapes that produce this wine are sourced from two separate vineyards: Popoli and Capestrano. Capestrano’s soaring summer temperatures and silty soils yield richness and structure. The rocky and exposed terrain of Popoli bestows fragrance and freshness. Spontaneous fermentation binds the raw materials into a sum that is greater than its individual parts-- a wine that is both rich and elegant, and that speaks clearly of its terroir.
