Testa Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is a true red wine gem from the Abruzzo region of central-southern Italy, to the east of Rome. Bordered on the east by the Adriatic and on the west by the Apennines, Abruzzo is one of Italy's most mountainous and beautiful regions, with tiny villages perched on its hilltops. Montepulciano is one of Italy's most popular red wine varietals, appreciated for its silky plum flavors, soft acidity and light tannins. This Testa Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is 100% Montepulciano from the Ortona, San Salvo and Pollutri growing areas of Abruzzo.
Testa Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is ruby red with reflections of garnet. Plums, black cherries and cassis dominate the bouquet and follow through on the palate of this rich, full-bodied wine. The wine was carefully vinified to achieve maximum concentration and to capture the flavorful character of the Montepulciano grape. After fermentation, it was aged for several months in oak barrels to add an extra level of depth and complexity. It is long and smooth on the finish with a pleasant hint of vanilla.
Enjoy Testa Montepulciano d'Abruzzo with pizza, lasagna, grilled burgers and aged cheeses.
