This is the wine that I first had when I first sampled a Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. Absolutely a great wine, and a great price. If you've never tried a Moneteplicaino, and many people haven't, you won't be disappointed. Absolutely terrific!
Hints of smoke, dusty florals and dark berries are well integrated on the palate and pleasantly persistent finish.
The grapes were macerated for 24 hours and then fermented and aged for 20 months in stainless steel.
