Municipality/area of production: Roseto Degli Abruzzi/Abruzzo Region. 

Variety: 100% Montepulciano

Vineyard: our Fosso Corno Estate is located in Roseto Degli Abruzzi and covers 30 hectares on a single hill, facing the Adriatic Sea. The vineyards from which we produce our Montepulciano grapes, are distinguished by the special attention which is dedicated to the pruning. The aim is to limit fruit production and create ideal conditions for air to circulate around the productive layer of the vines. The ideal conditions are essential for ensuring perfect ripening of the Montepulciano grapes.

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

Vinification: maceration for a maximum of ten days, in steel fermenting vats, followed first by alcoholic and then malolactic fermentation. The wine then moves on maturing process, in steel for about 4 months. Then it stays for a short while in bottle before being put on sale.

Winemaker’s notes: a young and immediately drinkable wine: ruby red colour with violet tints, delicate aromas of plum and morello cherry, robust and full-bodied in the mouth, slightly tannin-rich with a dry and flavourful finish.

Pairings: pasta with meat sauces, roasted red meat, chicken and rabbit chasseur.

Ideal serving temperature: 18°C
