Aires is produced from 100% Montepulciano grapes.
The harvest takes place in the period from the end of September to mid October. Maceration for a maximum of ten days, in steel fermenting vats. The wine is then put in steel for about 4 months for the ageing process. Finally it is kept bottled for a short while before being put on sale.
Aires is a young and immediately drinkable wine. Delicate aromas of plum and morello cherry on the nose, robust and full-bodied in the mouth, slightly tannin-rich with a dry flavoursome aftertaste.

 

Production area: Roseto Degli Abruzzi/ Abruzzo Region (Northern Abruzzi).

Variety: 100% Montepulciano

Vineyard: our Fosso Corno Estate’s located in Roseto Degli Abruzzi and covers 30 hectares on a single hill, facing the Adriatic Sea on the east side and the Gran Sasso mountain-chain on the west-side.

Harvest: the harvest takes place from the end of September to the mid of October.

Vinification: maceration for maximum ten days in steel fermenting vats, followed first by alcoholic and then by malolactic fermentation. The wine relaxes afterwards in steel vats for about 4 months. Finally, the Aires’s kept bottled for a short while before being released on the market.

Winemaker’s notes: a young, fruity, flavorful Montepulciano d’Abruzzo that shows the powerful temperament of the indigenous grape it’s made of (Montepulciano 100%).
An everyday ruby red with a fruity bouquet, full flavors of plum and cherry, medium-bodied, with smooth tannins and a pleasant after- taste.

Pairing suggestions: cold cuts, pasta with meat sauces, pizza, meat balls with tomato sauce, typical “cacio” cheese & egg balls, pork loin.
