Montepulciano




Arbosto Rosso Arbosto Rosso $11.00

We love affordable easy drinkers! Medium to full bodied with very soft tannins despite the high tannin Aglianico. Bright acidity and rustic notes with tart red cherries and green olives flavors. Add a little earthy herb and a light amount of spice then a long finish with hints of chocolate, baking spices, and some peppery, toasted oak.



Nicodemi Nicodemi $13.00

The Montepulciano grape is used this beautifully vibrant Cerasuolo rose. The deeply pigmented skins are only in contact with the juice for about 12 hours, yet it creates a robust color. Cherry, strawberry, floral and earthy undertones. Pairs well with seafood, pizza and having your toes in the sand!



Il Faggio Il Faggio $14.00

Clay soils dominate the area of Abruzzo contributing to two things that area is knowm for: artisan ceramics and awesome wine! This Montepulciano shows big juicy red fruits up front with subtle smoky, peppery, and sweet tobacco notes. Big chewy tannins make this a great wine for food



Nicodemi Colline Teramane Nicodemi Colline Teramane $16.00

These have the ability to age in the bottle due to more tannin and acid. Red and black fruits, tobacco, earthy clay create a well rounded glass of wine. If you have had Montepulciano, give this a go!
