Darkly colored and made from certified organically grown grapes, this sturdy, robust Montepulciano packs a lot of flavor and is a terrific bang for the buck! Aromas of blackberry compote, spiced plums and wild violets grace the nose with aromatic richness and earthy complexity. In the mouth the flavors gather with a gentle grip of mouth coating tannin and finishes with a lift of acidity and a lingering note of wild forest berries.
Served with a light chill, this hearty red comes alive with food pairings. Makes a great match to barbecues, pasta and outdoor picnics.
Aged in large botti for several months, followed by 6 months of bottle aging.
