This classic Italian red wine is made from Montepulciano grapes grown on the coastal vineyards of Abruzzo. The Appassimento technique is an old, traditional Italian winemaking method that involves partially drying grapes on the vine. This results in wines with greater concentration, body and texture, and allows winemakers to create more robust wines from grapes grown in cooler climates. This wine features aromas of wild cherry and red plum, followed by notes of juicy fruit, bright acidity and ripe tannins.
Montepulciano done in the Appesimento style, just like Amarone, meaning the grapes are partially dried before making the wine. This concentrates the flavors, and boy are there flavors here! Lots of jammy but dry maraschino cherry, figs, and more with a sleek finish. Try with Salami.
