Captivating the nose with complex aromas of pomegranate, autumn leaves, and brandied cherries. On the palate savory notes of exotic spices are tempered by a slightly jammy flavor of plum.

We take pride in working our vines in a manner of putting quality at the forefront of our efforts. At low crop yields, sometimes less than half of what comparable vines are asked to produce, we are making the effort to bring in only the most pristine and high-quality grapes. This effort shows in the continuing excellence of our Montepulciano, a variety that routinely scores 90 points or higher from the most discerning wine critics. The elegant 2018 vintage is no break from this proud tradition.
Food Pairing Notes
While fabulous on its own this wine begs to join a Maccheroni alla Chitarra with Ragù Abruzzese at your table.
