Tasting Notes

Dark, ripe plum and black cherry aromas abound in this rich, smooth and deliciously full-flavoured red with notes of herbs and liquorice. Montepulciano is brilliant pizza wine, but this superb example also goes very nicely with meats and stews, and especially with the local speciality – grilled lamb.
Victoria Moore - Daily Telegraph: 'enjoyed the cherries and dust and real Italian DNA in the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo' and 'this is one I’d love to have in my kitchen for pizza or pasta nights.'
