Winemaker Notes

Bold notes of stone fruits—there's even a hint of white peach, a sign of serious complexity and nobility in a red wine—and incense flood the aromatic nose. The mouth is stunningly fresh despite its almost bottomless concentration; plenty of blackberry notes, warm earth, chocolate and spice. Tannins are structured yet feel like satin on the tongue, while the finish lingers with notes of red fruit and baking spices.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The estate's 2006 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Notari is an explosive wine bursting with dark fruit, yet green elements lurk in the background that detract from the wine's overall balance. I expected more in this vintage from one of my favorite Montepulcianos. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2014.

Nicodemi, Italy
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.

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.
