Winemaker Notes

A well-structured, well-balanced and lingering wine of anintense ruby red. An ample nose profile offers notes of blackberry, blueberry andblackcurrant, with hints of red pepper and liquorice, and a balsamic nuance. Therich, stylish palate shows a long finale.

Critical Acclaim

JS 92
James Suckling
Hints of cherry jam turn into flowers on the nose. Full body, soft and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Remains silky and fresh at the finish.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
A finely balanced, medium- to full-bodied red, this offers a pure note of pureed black cherry, singed orange peel, dried thyme and ample ground spice. Bright and well-knit, with creamy tannins and a lingering finish.

Nicodemi  Winery Image

Fattoria Nicodemi is located in the Teramo district in Abruzzo, a hilly province bordering the Adriatic sea in central Italy. It was founded by Bruno Nicodemi, and today is run by brother and sister team Alessandro and Elena Nicodemi. High up in these chalky, clay-rich hills, the Nicodemi estate couldn't be better located—and any more different than bulk producers in the Abruzzo lowlands. The family's vineyards, at more than 900 feet above sea level, enjoy a slow cook, with warm afternoons and cool evenings. "We try to work in a simple way," says Elena, to let the estate's terroir speak clearly; all field work, including the harvest, is done by hand.

The estate's wines can be divided into three groups. Their Montepulciano d'Abruzzo and Trebbiano d'Abruzzo wines represent fruit-forward, single-varietal bottlings that are both rich in flavor and represent great value. (Cerasuolo is the estate's rosé; the name refers to the wine's deep blush, which is called "cirasce" in Abruzzo dialect, meaning cherry-colored.)

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.

Montepulciano is the second most planted red variety in Italy after Sangiovese, though it is achieves its highest potential in the region of Abruzzo. Consistently enticing and enjoyable, Montepulciano enjoys great popularity throughout central and southern Italy as well. A tiny bit grows with success in California, Argentina and Australia. 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.
