    Winemaker Notes

    Deep ruby red with purple reflections that become garnet red with aging. On the nose, the wine is intense and fruity -- typical of Montepulciano. The palate is supple and elegant with underbrush berry notes.

    Pair with grilled red meat.

    Fattoria Le Terrazze, Marche, Italy
    Image of winery
    Fattoria Le Terrazze is located on slopes overlooking the Adriatic sea, with vineyards situated at 500 meters altitude on Monte Conero; this unusually hilly and rocky part of the Adriatic coastline has hosted vineyards for nearly 3000 years. The Terni family has owned the estate since 1882, and today Attilio Pagli is consultant enologist. The vineyards are planted almost entirely to Montepulciano, with small amounts of Merlot, Syrah, and Chardonnay. These wines are rich, exciting examples of the great potential of this lesser known area – as the Tuscan coastlands are bought up by the scores for production of expensive, sexy red wines, the "other coast" of the Marche still abounds in values – and in wines with equal appeal.

    Le Terrazze is best known for its "Super-Conero" wine, "Sassi Neri," a special-selection barrique-aged 100% Montepulciano, and for the Rosso IGT "Chaos". A physicist in his previous incarnation, winemaker Antonio Terni named the limited-production "Chaos" after the chaos theory, which dictates that a particular result cannot always be explained by the interaction of its components. In this case, the combination of Montepulciano, Syrah and Merlot, matured in barrique, results in an extraordinary dark purple wine with an opulent bouquet. The simple "Rosso Conero" is a delicious Montepulciano briefly aged in large casks in order, emphasizing fruit and freshness.

    Image for Marche content section

    Stretching along Italy’s eastern coast with neighbors, Umbria to its west and Abruzzo to its south, Marche is a region with a varying climate from north to south. Its coastal plains roll into hills that become the Apennine Mountains, which run the length of the country. The Marche's best red wines come from the grapes, Montepulciano and Sangiovese; the local Verdicchio makes refreshing, crisp and light whites.

    Montepulciano

    View all wine

    Consistently enticing and enjoyable, Montepulciano enjoys great popularity throughout central and southern Italy and is gaining quite a following in many other parts of the world. Widely prolific in its homeland, Montepulciano is actually 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.

    In the Glass

    Dark and inky, Montepulciano brims with boysenberry, black plum and juicy tart cherry flavors. Typical aromas come in the form of berry pie, freshly cut Italian herbs, dark chocolate and licorice. It’s a full-bodied wine with fine to rustic tannins.

    Perfect Pairings

    Historically this variety has been one to inhabit many pizzeria and cafe wine lists throughout central and into southern Italy, offering amazing value for everyday consumption. It is no doubt a perfect complement to a variety of other foods we are used to: barbecued brisket, meatloaf, Shepherd’s Pie, meatloaf and grilled portabella mushrooms. Think of it as the perfect alternative to Syrah, Petite Sirah or Malbec if you’re looking to broaden your horizons.

    Sommelier Secret

    The wine called Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is actually not to be confused with Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. Montepulciano is also the name of a village in Tuscany; Sangiovese grows there and is responsible for Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The grape called Montepulciano grows in Abruzzo and makes the wine called Montepulciano d’Abruzzo.
