2018 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo [5L Bag-in-Box] (Centorame)

Centorame, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Rosso [5 liter Bag-in-Box], Abruzzo, Italy 2018

100% Montepulciano {organic}


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: Proscuitto, green olives, & fresh red tomatoes w/ olive oil, caciocavallo cheese. Burrata w/ country bread.
