A reserve Montepulciano d’Abruzzo with intense fruit aromas and notes of black cherry and forest fruits. Twenty-four months in oak casks and six months in the bottle for an ageing which improves with time. Deep ruby red with purple hues. On the nose a wide range of notes rangy from fruity blackberry, raspberry, morello cherry and dried fig, to floral violet scents and hints of spices, liquorice, dark chocolate, clove, leather, coffee, balsamic mint. Full-flavoured to taste with good length, complex and strong tannins.
