How it's made

Produced from selected parcels of Monteulciano grapes grown in the Chieti province of Abruzzo, on southeast Italy's Adriatic coast. Hand-harvested from low-yielding 30 to 50 year old vines. Fermentation takes place in small batches between 82 to 86 degrees F, with daily pumping over. The skins are left in contact with the fermenting wine for 10 days. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is transferred to Adria's cellars for a brief maturation prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of plum and black cherry with a hint of spice. The palate combines ripe, redcurrant and red cherry fruit with more savory, herbal characters. A rounded red with supple tannins and a hint of mocha on the finish.

Food Match

Pasta dishes with meat or tomato sauces, pizza, grilled or barbecued meats. Pairs nicely with cheese dishes as well.
