Winemaker's Notes

"This saturated dense purple-colored effort reveals a terrific bouquet of melted licorice, black pepper, smoke, and blackberries, good acidity, abundant fruit, and a medium to full-bodied, long finish. It is a tremendous wine for its price."
-Wine Advocate

Deep, inky color with an intense perfume of licorice, black pepper and smoke. Generous on the palate with ripe, round fruit, excellent structure and delicate acidity. Recommended with sausages, stews and grilled meats. A perfect barbeque wine.

Made from 95% Montepulciano and 5% Sangiovese in combination with other local varietals. The wine was vinified in tank and aged in large oak barrels for 6-12 months. Unfined and unfiltered, the wine has a dark inky color and an intense perfume of licorice, black pepper and smoke. This Montepulciano is generous on the palate with ripe, round fruit, excellent structure and delicate acidity.
