Report Date: September, 2016
Producer: LC Villa
Drinking Window: 2016-2017
Appellation: Montepulcino d’Abruzzo
Aromas and flavors of ripe cherries and raisins are woven together with tobacco notes all coming together in the glass. Medium-bodied with a soft, round texture that moves seamlessly into the finish, which is marked with ripe cherries and tobacco notes. Many will enjoy this easy going Montepulcino for its forward, open-knit style and it should drink well over the course of the next year. (Best 2016-2017) - September, 2016 (JD)

Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2015
Grapes: 100% Montepulciano
Vinification and Refinement
Selected vineyards with clayey and limestone soil. Old traditional vinification method: completely mature grapes are manually harvested from vineyards following ripening curves. Gentle grape pressing, maceration in oak vats with hand punching-down and controlled temperature fermentation. In January the wine is decanted into oak barriques where it ages for about 12 months and after a period in stainless steel tanks the wine is finished with refining in bottle. Bottle lifespan: on sale 3 years after the harvest; bottle-ageing even for a further 10 years.
Colour: Deep ruby colour, limpid and intense.
Bouquet: Strong liquorice and forest fruits scents.
Taste: Full-bodied and robust, with a tannin component embraced by the grape’s aromatic weave.
Great accompaniment with grilled red meat, Spaghetti alla Bolognese and mature cheeses. Serve at 18°C.
