Fantini Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

Made from 100% Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grapes from vineyards located within the townships of Ortona, San Salvo and Pollutri and covering a total of 334 hectares (825 acres).  Vinification begins with soft pressing and de-stalking, maceration on the skins and fermentation for 15 days. Ruby red with garnet reflections, the bouquet is fruity and quite persistent, reminiscent of red fruits, marasca cherries and plums with vanilla nuances; full-bodied, with good balance and firm tannins, flavorful and long on the palate, immediately appealing and versatile.  Best served at 16-18° C (60.8-64.4° F) with cold cuts and salami or structured first courses, meat dishes and cheese.
