Made from 100% Montepulciano d'Abruzzo grown in hillside vineyards on Italy's Adriatic coast. The grapes are harvested in October, crushed, destemmed and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. This wine undergoes minimal aging prior to release from the winery. Ruby red in color with pleasing aromas and a dry, mellow taste. This wine is not meant for aging. It is distinguished by its fresh fruit, which is meant to be enjoyed right away.
