WINEMAKING

A variety that is usually late to harvest, once ready to perform, the fruit was picked in the cool evening to preserve the vibrancy and full fruit expression. The fruit then encountered ten days on skins late in the season, then fermented at 20-22 degrees, and hand plunged twice daily to extract all expected from this deep, robust and delicious variety.

FOOD PAIRING

The Montepulciano is one of the most adaptable vines in the world regarding food combinations. As a result, the acidity is perfect, the spices are well-balanced, and the tannin is firm enough to keep the mouth from being irritated. Refinement in barrels for 15months allows the fruity tastes of the wine to give way to more complex spice notes, making the wine rounder and giving it a more refined character.

  • Lamb

Montepulciano is a big fan of lamb and goatling, mountain meat that enhances the untamed character of the wine and pairs nicely with the red fruits in the vintage. Mutton skewers, Turkish kebabs, and Greek souvlaki are all excellent pairings for Montepulciano. Perfect with marinated or spiced meats such as sage, marjoram or basil. A rustic Montepulciano shares the same balsamic aromas as those found in rustic Montepulciano.

VINTAGE NOTES

The 2019 vintage will be remembered as a hot and dry harvest. The season started with budburst occurring at the usual time, but a hot summer required exceptional irrigation management to nurture the vines to their full potential. Challenging climatic conditions were managed, which resulted in good to excellent wine quality.
