A blend of 60% Sangiovese, 25% Montepulciano, and 15% Sagrantino grapes, Piparello Riserva is a dry and soft wine, displaying aromas of vanilla, juniper, and minerals. Pairs well with pasta, red meat, and cheese.
"The 2005 Montefalco Rosso Riserva Pipparello is a rock star wine. This powerful, intense red emerges with generous dark cherries, plums, licorice, smoke and leather. The late harvest in 2005 resulted in an extraordinarily complete wine blessed with tons of pedigree. The 2005 Pipparello is 60% Sangiovese, 25% Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and 15% Sagrantino. The wine saw 42 days of contact on the skins and was aged for a year in stainless steel followed by two years in cask. Simply put, it is magnificent!
