Winemaker's Notes:

Bright ruby-red in color with purple reflections, this youthful red offers explosive aromas of blueberries, sweet cherries, licorice and sweet spices. On the palate, it is medium-bodied with loads of plush, fresh red fruit. Delicious by the glass and perfect with hearty food such as eggplant parmigiana, meat-based pasta, sausages, meatballs and salami.

About Valle Reale:

Valle Reale is a territory that seems predestined for wine. The geological characteristics and ambient beauty are unique in these vineyards that are set in one of Italy's most beautiful national parks.

Valle Reale possesses all of the natural elements conducive to the production of great wine. There is an abundance of water, proximity to the sea and the benefits of a maritime climate, ample sunshine and mineral rich soils.

The Pizzolo family together with Leonardo Valenti have striven to produce a model of central Italian wine: strength, exuberance, vitality, Mediterranean color, elegance, balance and depth. They are working exclusively with the Montepulciano varietal and seek to highlight the grape's intrinsic qualities in both the young, vibrant base wine as well as the cru San Calisto which they hope will offer critics and consumers alike a new benchmark for Montepulciano d'Abruzzo.
