MONTEPULCIANO D'ABRUZZO D.O.C.

ITALIAN RED WINE

The Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Solo Cru is a red wine made from the Montepulciano wine grapes in the Abruzzo region of east-central Italy. The grapes grow in the Abruzzo region between the Apennines foothills down to a few miles inland from the Adriatic coast.

 

The Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Solo Cru is a deeply coloured wine with hints of pepper and spice, augmented by herbal and floral aromas and a mineral complexity. It can be described as an aromatic, tannic, low acidity wine, with earthy notes and black berries. It has an inky-purple colour with a thick, almost syrupy mouth-feel.

 

The grapes are picked by hand and soft pressed, with a post-fermentation maceration of 25 days, conducted with periodic and regular pumping of the must on the cap of mare in conjunction with the practice of delestage. Solo Cru’s Montepulciano d’Abruzzo has a great aging potential of at least 10 years, unlike many other versions of this wine.
