Bottetto Montepulciano d’Abruzzo
Ruby-red in color, this wine is surprisingly concentrated. With silky tannins and layers of dark berry fruit and spices, this is a rich and aromatic Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. Full-bodied and firm, yet supple. At 1,100+ feet above sea level, Valle Reale’s vineyards are nestled into one of Italy’s most beautiful national parks. This rich wine is made from 100% Montepulciano grapes grown in the oldest estate vineyards on soils rich in chalk, clay and pebbles. Cool summer nights, windswept days, and thin, stony soils characterize the section of vineyard from which the fruit for this wine is sourced.
Harvested by hand in November, the grapes are gently pressed and macerated with the skins for ten days to ensure ideal color
concentration and structure. Aged 12 months in oak barrels, and 6 months in bottle.
Food Pairing: It is ready to be enjoyed with hearty pasta dishes, roasted poultry or lamb, and slow cooked ribs.
