Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Montepulciano is the most planted variety of the region which is perfectly suited for the growing of this variety which has earned a reputation as one of the most widely exported DOC wine in Italy. Our Montepulciano is very traditional: grapes are carefully hand-picked, generally between the end of September and early October. In the cellar the grapes are de-stemmed and gently crushed. After fermentation, the wine is a bright, deep red.
On the nose we find dark cherry and raspberry with interesting notes of pepper and hints of vanilla. It is full-bodied on the palate with a soft acidity that leads to a long and elegant finish."
90/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, June 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Fruit forward and comfortingly appealing, the wine shows Black Doris plum, clove and toasted nut aromas on the nose, leading to a beautifully supple palate that’s ripe and flavoursome. Medium-full-bodied and silky with an appealing spicy finish. At its best: now to 2023."
