The 2005 International Trophy Best Italian Red Varietal award winner with Decanter Magazines "World Wine Awards 2008". One of only 2 Italian wines to scoop an International award that year.
100% Montepulciano d'Abruzzo
A full bodied, velvet wine that is sheer opulence, perfectly ingrained tannins and a super long finish.
Dark Ruby red with purple highlights.
Ripe red fruit with blackberries, chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon.
Hard cheeses and Lamb dishes.
Harvest commences in the second half of October.
The 2005 is quite simply one of the best wines in Italy and at this price probably the 2005 QPR steal of the region. No other Montepulciano we carry comes more highly recommended at the price.
Winner of the Decanter 2008 Award International Trophy for Red Italian Varietal over £10. Consider this wine faced competition against Barolo and Brunello and you will begin to understand the sheer quality of this Montepulciano d'Abruzzo.

Each bottle does not contain only wine, but thousands upon thousands of caresses, changing moods and frames of mind, the passing of the seasons, a year's work and the patient wait for the final outcome.
