Deep ruby color, with purple shadows. The bouquet shows rose, delicate red fruits similar to currant and raspberry, pepper, clove and accents of brush. Medium-bodied, in the mouth is velvety, with hints of cherry, blueberry and licorice, with fresh and energetic tannins that permeates the entire sips.
Pairs well with a typical italian local salumi, pasta aglio e olio ( garlic and olive oil), porchetta, grilled chicken, and brodetto di pesce (local fish soup).
The 2014 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is a steady expression of the grape with that noticeable and needed touch of rusticity that reminds you of the rugged beauty of Abruzzo. The wine shows the personality of its roots. But the effect is also smooth and well balanced, making this an easy-drinking option to pair with hamburgers or hearty homemade meatloaf.
