Montepulciano D’Abruzzo D.O.C.

“The grapes are harvested late in order to have a natural fenolic maturation, that will allow for lingering flavour of complex tannins on the palate without the need for a long ageing time.
This wine is characterised with a fresh and flowery aroma and by a deep ruby colour.”
