La Piuma Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2018
La Piuma represents a value-oriented collection of appellation specific D.O.C.G. / I.G.T. certified wines.
On the nose we find dark cherry and raspberry with interesting notes of pepper and hints of vanilla. It is full-bodied on the palate with a soft acidity that leads to a long and elegant finish.
SOIL: Hilly, clayey and calcareous
Montepulciano is the most planted variety of the region which is perfectly suited for the growing of this variety which has earned a reputation as one of the most widely exported DOC wine in Italy. Our Montepulciano is very traditional: grapes are carefully hand-picked, generally between the end of September and early October. In the cellar the grapes are de-stemmed and gently crushed. After fermentation, the wine is a bright, deep red.
Food Pairing Notes
Excellent with pasta, pizza and every kind of meat.
