Montepulciano d`Abruzzo, Torre del Colle 2016, Italy
Grape variety, 100%Montepulciano lightly oaked.
Intense purple in colour with intense aromas of blackberries and cherries. The palate is round and rich with notes of ripe berry fruit, sweet black cherries a touch of liquorice and a distinctive spicy character from 12 months ageing in wooden casks. Chewy tannins support the palate which finishes long and fruity.
A great match for hearty pasta dishes with spicy tomato sauces, Salami and mature hard cheeses.
