    Berries are destemmed, crushed and fermented on skins in 100% stainless steel for freshness and vibrancy. The wine is then aged in predominantly steel tank with a portion moved to second use French oak for softness and complexity. The wine is then blended prior to bottling and released after six weeks maturation in bottle.  A lovely medium to full bodied wine with lifted aromatics. Dark fruited with red berry freshness and acidity. The wine has plush fruit flavour and soft, mellowing skin tannins that are harmoniously integrated making this is bright fruit-filled wine and a lovely step into Italian wine & food culture.

    Region

    The famed region in central Italy, the Abruzzo lies to the west of the Adriatic sea and is considered one of the greenest areas in all of Europe - thanks to the conservation of its wilderness through environmental protection. It produces renowned examples of Montepulciano & Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, red wine being the dominant output. Wine making traditions can be dated to around the 6th century BC and since that time, the favourable conditions of the land, rugged and changing landscape and geographical location have all served to create wines of rusticity and distinction. Due to the remarkably varied geography of the region there is a similarly diverse range of culinary specialities, but think lamb and mutton dishes with strong flavours of rosemary, garlic & funghi, towards the coast one can also expect seafood to match.  Look for producers such as Cirelli and Faraone, but also note the quality of smaller producers who are exporting fruit forward wines which are drinking superbly on release.
