    Winemaker Notes

    At 1,000 feet above sea level, Valle Reale's vineyards are nestled into one of Italy's most beautiful national parks. This rich 100% Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is made from the oldest estate vineyards, planted back in 1975 on soils rich in chalk, clay and pebbles. Harvested by hand in the second part of October, the grapes are gently pressed and macerated with the skins for 1012 days to ensure ideal color concentration and structure. After full malolactic fermentation in barrels, the wine is matured for one more year in the same French barriques and then refined in bottle for another eight months.

    Valle Reale introduces the wine lover to a new breed of Montepulciano. Surprisingly concentrated, with silky tannins and layers of dark berry fruit and spices, this is a rich and aromatic Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. Fullbodied and firm, yet supple, it is ready to be enjoyed with hearty pasta dishes, roasted poultry or lamb, and ribs.

    Valle Reale
    Valle Reale is a territory that seems predestined for wine. The geological characteristics and ambient beauty are unique in these vineyards that are set in one of Italy's most beautiful national parks.

    Valle Reale possesses all of the natural elements conducive to the production of great wine. There is an abundance of water, proximity to the sea and the benefits of a maritime climate, ample sunshine and mineral rich soils.

    The Pizzolo family together with Leonardo Valenti have striven to produce a model of central Italian wine: strength, exuberance, vitality, Mediterranean color, elegance, balance and depth. They are working exclusively with the Montepulciano varietal and seek to highlight the grape's intrinsic qualities in both the young, vibrant base wine as well as the cru San Calisto which they hope will offer critics and consumers alike a new benchmark for Montepulciano d'Abruzzo.

    The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
