Produced from selected parcels of Montepulciano grapes, from low yielding 30 to 50 year old vines in the Chieti province of Abruzzo. The warm and dry climate produces a healthy crop of excellent quality grapes, hand harvested in mid September. Fermentation took place in small batches between 28 and 30C using natural yeasts. The skins were left in contact with the fermenting wine for 10 days. After malolactic fermentation the wine was transferred to Adria’s cellars and briefly matured in large old oak casks.
A medium-bodied, warm, spicy red with aromas of plum and juicy fresh cherries. The palate is fresh and bright displaying light red fruit and redcurrant flavors, herbal notes and more red cherry fruit on the finish.
