What is Montepulciano?

According to wine experts, Montepulciano is most closely related to the Sangiovese grape.  It is Italy’s second most planted indigenous varietal and has had a reputation for being a modestly priced juicy “pizza-friendly” red wine.  In addition, it does have remarkable aging potential and is best enjoyed after 4 years.

Winemaker Notes: 

 “Intense ruby red with garnet reflections. Intense berry fruit with the persistent presence of “Marasca” cherry. Long and intense with mature fruit, mainly raspberry and black currant.”

“This wine was created to meet the challenge of uniting international grape varieties with our indigenous Montepulciano.  Making a wine and seeing it grow well makes us happy and gives a great sense of satisfaction.  I want to share this satisfaction with our partners and friends who over the years have helped both me and my winery grow.” ~ Stefano Antonucci
