Winemaker's Notes

Made from 95% Montepulciano and 5% Sangiovese in combination with other local varieties, fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks with periodic pumpovers to ensure greater color and flavor extraction. This Montepulciano is aged in large Slavonian oak barrels for 6-12 months.

Unfined and unfiltered to preserve all its fleshy fruit flavors, this wine has a dark inky color and intense aromas of ripe blackberry, cherry and herbs, followed by licorice, black pepper and smoke. Generous yet pure on the palate with ripe, round tannins, excellent structure and delicate acidity. Recommended with rich pastas, game, sausages, stews and grilled meats. The perfect barbecue wine. A great value!

"Monti's 2004 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is an awesome glass of wine. This plump, juicy, cask-aged Montepulciano is loaded with jammy dark cherries, spices and underbrush. It should offer its finest drinking, not to mention a lot of pleasure, over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2009.

This small family-run estate in Abruzzo makes wines loaded with character. Oenologist Riccardo Cotarella has succeeded in giving the wines a little more polish without robbing the wines of their distinctive personalities. These unfiltered wines strike a very beautiful balance between traditional and modern styles."
