Montepulciano D’Abruzzo Feuduccio DOC
Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is a mainstay in Abruzzo – and on wine lists across the world, thanks to its often-inky color and highly aromatic nature featuring spicy and earthy nuances. Il Feuduccio has crafted a unique, oak-aged interpretation – fleshy, complex, beautifully structured and intense in all ways.
It is aged for twelve months in varying sizes of oak barrels and at least six months in bottle. Layers and layers of aromas and flavor, to be discovered one by one. Unfiltered.
