Immediate red cherry fruits spring out of the glass, along with aromas of plum, juicy fresh cherries and subtle spices. The palate is fresh and bright displaying red fruit and blackberry flavors, herbal notes, a plump texture and chocolate notes on the finish.
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 82º to 86ºF using natural yeasts. The skins were left in contact with the fermenting wine for ten days. After malolactic fermentation the wine is then transferred to Adria's cellars for maturation prior to bottling.
