Production

Produced from selected parcels of Montepulciano grapes, from low yielding 30 to 50 year old vines planted in clay/chalk soils in the Chieti province of Abruzzo. The warm and dry climate produces a healthy crop of excellent quality grapes, hand harvested in mid September. Fermentation took place in small batches between 28 and 30ºC using natural yeasts. The skins were left in contact with the fermenting wine for 10 days. After malolactic fermentation the wine was transferred to Adria’s cellars for maturation prior to bottling.

Tasting notes

Aromas of plum, juicy fresh cherries and subtle spices. The palate is fresh and bright displaying red fruit and blackberry flavours, herbal notes, a plump texture and chocolate notes on the finish.

Food match

Pasta and ragu sauce, pizza, grilled meat even carpaccio of beef.
