Cataldi Madonna Toni Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2013
Bright ruby red color. The bouquet on the nose is rich, textured expression of dark fruit with balanced oak and smoky notes. On the palate it is dry and warm with elegant tannins and medium body; mature fruit notes accompanied by pleasant acidity give this wine a fresh full character, very refined and long on the finish.
Ideal throughout the meal and can stand up to strong flavors.
The winery is run by his son, Luigi Cataldi Madonna, who continues the important working philosophy whose goal is to safeguard and enhance the specific characteristics of the terroir. Ofena, the city where the winery is located, is in a mountain's valley at 380 meters (1246 feet), to the feet of Gran Sasso, which is traditionally called "oven of Abruzzo". Thanks to the exceptional exposition to the sun and to the sensible diurnal tempratures, this area has remarkable qualities for wine making, also thanks to the composition of the soil.
