Deep ruby, purple-red color; clean, bright vibrant, lingering aromas with hints of saffron, red berries, blackberries and black cherries. It has a rich, rounded palate full of clean, ripe red berries and a well-balanced, full textured finish. This is a great example of the montepulciano grape variety made in a style that is both traditional and modern. Serve with substantial first courses with game sauces, grilled meats and richly textured fish dishes. Drink immediately or keep for 5 years too.
