VINIFICATION

The Montepulciano grapes come from the rugged, hilly Abruzzo region in central Italy, known for the production of rich, robust reds made from the local Montepulciano grape. The Appenines tower over the region, which has vineyards stretching from the mountain slopes down to the Adriatic sea.

The grapes are carefully hand-picked in late September and early October. Pickers revisit the vineyards time and time again; only selecting those bunches of grapes at their optimum ripeness.

The grapes are de-stemmed, then very gently crushed, causing as little damage as possible to the skins. Very frequent remontage takes place before and during fermentation to obtain optimum colour extraction and soft tannins. There is a total of 15 days skin contact before racking.
