    Winemaker Notes

    Ruby red with garnet reflections. Intense, persistent and fruity (red fruits, “marasca”, plum), with hints of vanilla. Full-bodied, tannic and well balanced, intense and quite persistent.

    Good with salami, rich main courses, meat and cheese.

    Caldora, Italy
    Caldora is one of the largest cooperative wineries in the Abruzzo. Total holdings consist of around 1200 ha, but only the best 200 ha are selected, vinified, and bottled under the Caldora name. The majority of these plantings are located within the Ortona area in a microclimate that runs through a 25 km band between the Adriatic coast and the 3000m high Mount Maiella. The first bottling, with an updated winery facility coupled to an avant-garde vineyard management system, captured the essence of Caldora: maximum fruit expression in a top quality, reasonably priced wine that everyone can enjoy.

    A warm, Mediterranean vine-growing paradise, in Abruzzo, the distance from mountains to seaside is relatively short. The Apenniness, which run through the center of Italy, rise up on its western side while the Adriatic Sea defines its eastern border.

    Wine composition tends to two varieties: Abruzzo’s red grape, Montepulciano and its white, Trebbiano. Montepulciano d’Abruzzo can come in a quaffable, rustic and fruity style that generally drinks best young. It is also capable of making a more serious style, where oak aging tames its purely wild fruit.

    Trebbiano in Abruzzo also comes in a couple of varieties. Trebbiano Toscana makes a simple and fruity white. However when meticulously tended, the specific Trebbiano d’Abruzzo-based white wines can be complex and long-lived.

    In the region’s efforts to focus on better sites and lower yields, vine acreage has decreased in recent years while quality has increased.

    Consistently enticing and enjoyable, Montepulciano enjoys great popularity throughout central and southern Italy. Montepulciano is the second most planted red variety in Italy after Sangiovese, though it is most associated with the region of Abruzzo where it achieves its highest potential. A tiny bit grows in California, Argentina and Australia as well. Somm Secret— Montepulciano is also the name of a village in Tuscany where, confusingly, they don’t grow the Montepulciano grape at all! Sangiovese shines in yet another Tuscan village, here making the reputable wine called Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.
