I ordered a case of this wine for the first time here. The pictured bottle is not what I received. Same vineyard but different label, different size bottle, different name. The taste is slightly sweeter, but results I wanted are there. I do not get a red wine headache from this specific product. I will keep it, drink it and give as gifts. But am disappointment I did not get exactly what I ordered per picture and description.
The distinctive montepulciano grape is grown primarily in southeastern Italy's Abruzzi region along the Adriatic coast, but it is often confused with wines designated Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, named for and produced (with sangiovese grapes) in a town in Tuscany. More than four centuries ago, the Farnese family planted vineyards throughout their extensive estate. Located 19 miles inland, the Farnese range encompasses diverse microclimates and terroirs producing rich, complex wines.
