This is a single-vineyard wine from the Monteodorisio Vineyard in Chieti, Abruzzo.
The Montepulciano was hand-harvested in mid-September from three blocks on a northwest facing ridge at 700 feet in elevation. The majority of the grapes were cooled down at the winery and fermented at a cool 60ºF with the remaining grapes being whole-bunch pressed to tank with a bit of skin contact and chilled very cold to prevent fermentation and held in tank. Primary fermentation occurred naturally in a sealed stainless-steel tank and when the wine reached 15 g/L residual sugar the tank was cooled down in order to hold the ferment at 10 g/L. The wine was bottled and topped with more of the unfermented juice from tank and the bottles were crown sealed. Secondary fermentation occurred over the next 2-3 months and the wine was released without disgorgement.
Spices, flowers and herbs complement red berries on the nose and in the mouth. Juicy and refreshing.
