Grapes: Montepulciano

This delicious wine comes from 15-20 year old vines trained using the ancient method of trellising, known as “pergola". They are planted to clay-rich soils, hand-harvested and wild yeast fermented for 2 weeks on the skins in stainless tanks. Produced
from selected parcels of Monteulciano grapes grown in the Chieti province of Abruzzo, on southeast Italy’s Adriatic coast. Hand-harvested from low-yielding vines between 30 to 50 years in age. Fermentation takes place in small batches with daily
pumpovers. The skins are left in contact with the fermenting wine for two weeks.
It’s ripe, dark, savory, and herbaceous with very friendly and unassuming tannins, a good tickle of acidity, and just the slightest hint of cocoa on the finish. Think currants, cocoa dusted black cherries and fresh savory herbs like oregano.
