"Aromas of earth, red flowers and warm baking spice cover the red-cherry fruit on the nose. The palate is full in feel, with a blanket of anise and allspice surrounding the rich red-fruit core". Alexander Peartree from Wine Enthusiast.

 

Region: Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Italy.

Winery: Torre Zambra. 

Type: Red.

Grape: 100% Montepulcianoa red Italian wine grape variety. When fully ripened, Montepulciano can produce deeply colored wines, with moderate acidity and noticeable extract and alcohol levels.

Color: Deep red color, with ruby glints.

Aroma: The nose is intense, revealing aromas of wild berries and jam, with notes of tobacco, coffee and cocoa powder in the finale.

Palate: The wine is complex, velvety and round in the mouth, well-balanced and pleasantly lasting. Aftertastes of chocolate can be perceived in the close, with hints of bitter almonds, purely typical of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo.

Pairing: Thanks to its complexity, it is the ideal companion for red meats and games, perfect for structured meals.

Production: This wine is made with rigorously selected grapes from the Colle Maggio hillside in Villamagna, at an altitude of about 200 metres on the sea level. The south-east exposure of the vines, the limestone and clay soils and per-hectare yield kept under 120 quintals, allow the production of a red wine with a great organoleptic complexity. The grapes are picked by hand and collected in small wooden crates in the first ten days of October. Once in the cellars, the long maceration in steel tanks at controlled temperature guarantees to extract all the colour from the skins.

The wines then mature for 6 months in concrete vats, for a further 12 months in French and Slavonian oak Tonneaux (20% in first-passage oak and 80% in second-passage) and finally for 4 months in the bottle.

Alcohol: 14%.
