The Pietrantonj winery pays particular attention to the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo grape as the real focus of their production. Aged in traditional wooden reagala Montepulciano red wines gain great structure under the careful eye of the two sisters. The Pietrantonj sisters also grow other traditional varietals such as Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, Malvasia and Pecorino.
The Pietrantonj’s have long chosen to pay close attention to the care of the vineyards, 90% of which have a system of espalier with spurred cordon and guyot. The Pietrantonj’s have also decided to lower their yields below those provided by the DOC in order to produce wines of excellent quality.
And so, with this tasty and traditional Montepulciano d’Abruzzo (it is 100% Montepulciano d’Abruzzo) we present a wine with intense ruby red color and a nose of dried roses, red fruit, leather and earth. Luscious and satisfying to drink with red and black fruit, sweet spice, vanilla, licorice and tobacco leaf on the palate.
