Montepulciano d`Abruzzo DOC 2014

Made from 100% Montepulciano d'Abruzzo grapes, grown in hillside vineyards near the Adriatic coast of Abruzzo. The grapes are harvested in October, destemmed, crushed, and fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve juiciness and softness.

Tasting Notes

Bright ruby-red in color, with delicious aromas of black cherries, strawberries, and herbs, Stella Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is dry, mellow, and concentrated. It is best enjoyed young, in order to fully appreciate its fruity varietal character.

Food Pairing

Enjoy with typical Italian dishes, red meats, pizza and cheese.
