2014 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Riserva (La Quercia)

La Quercia, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Riserva, Abruzzo, Italy 2014

100% Montepulciano

VELVETY RED FRUIT, BROAD & POWERFUL, TOBACCO

Montepulciano, the versatile champion of Central Tuscany’s eastern reaches is often gentler and juicer than the more famous Sangiovese which dominates Tuscany and Umbria. This organic offering from Abruzzo’s Antonio Lamona hails from hillsides overlooking the Adriatic and achieves an ambassadorial depiction of what the variety is all about while layering on delightful, delicate complexities and retaining the food-friendly firmness that Italian reds famously pride themselves on.

Serving Suggestion: Salume spread w/ roasted garlic focaccia. Classic spaghetti alla puttanesca.

2015 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Rosso "S. Michele" (Centorame)

Centorame, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo , Abruzzo, Italy 2015

{organic} 100% Montepulciano

CONCENTRATED BLACK CHERRY, MELLOW RED PEPPER, DYNAMIC AND SILKY

Centorame is led by Lamberto Vannuci, who started the winery in 2002 with just 3 hectares. He has gradually expanded, using only solar power, cow manure, and old-school pergola trellising to maintain his 12 hectares on the slopes of Abruzzo. His Montepulciano is hand-harvested late in the season from an organic 4 hectare parcel. 20 days of skin contact and a year of bottle aging complete the painstaking process to create a beautifully textured and dynamic wine with a big, bright nose and a round, softly spicy finish. 

Serving Suggestion: Aromatic braised lamb with charred red sweet peppers, orzo with roasted garlic and Roma tomatoes, crusty bread topped with melted Pecorino Fresco.

2015 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Rosso "Scuderie Ducali" (Centorame)

Centorame, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Rosso "Scuderie Ducali" , Abruzzo, Italy 2015

{organic} 100% Montepulciano

DARK FRUIT, ELEGANT & OH-SO-DRINKABLE

Saddle up your horse and let’s ride out to the country - this is a picnic red if we’ve ever met one. The motto of the Abruzzo region perfectly describes it, "forte e gentile" (strong and gentle). It’s both robust and elegant, with soft tannins and gentle spice – aromatic and rich, full of juicy black plums and boysenberries, a whiff of saddle leather, a pinch of pipe tobacco. Grown in sandier soil closer to the Vomano River that runs north of the vineyards, it’s a touch paler and more delicate than Centorame’s “San Michele” Montepulciano d’Abruzzo.

Serving suggestions: A basket full of proscuitto, green olives, & fresh red tomatoes w/ olive oil, caciocavallo cheese, burrata w/ country bread (torn apart with your hands). Eat & drink, then drowse in the warm grass & look at the shapes in the clouds while your horse grazes nearby.
