Red wine Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC Bag in box Torri Cantine

Sensory notes

Colour: A ruby red, almost impenetrable, with interesting purple reflections when young.
Nose: The nose reveals an interesting bouquet of red flowers, violets and carnation, which are well matched with a hint of blackberries, plums and sour cherries, supported by subtle balsamic notes.
Taste: Intense and persistent, consistent with the nose, it is characterised by the right warmth and a nice softness following, in magnificent harmony with the soft and proportionate tannins, supported by a good freshness and an interesting mineral finish.

Harvest
Born in one of the most vocated areas of Abruzzo, from an old vineyard trained to Tendone, at an ideal altitude to ensure a formidable temperature range and with a magnificent exposure.

A Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC obtained from hand picked grapes only harvested in the first ten days of October, from a certified organic agriculture, which ensures maximum respect for the surrounding environment.

Vinification
A vinification in thermo-conditioned steel vats, followed by a malolactic fermentation and a subsequent maturation of 6 months in cement tanks before being bottled in the total absence of oxygen.

How to pair our Montepulciano d’Abruzzo wine
Served on 14-16 degrees it is perfect for any occasion, pleasing all red wine lovers, especially if paired with well-structured and tasty dishes: aperitifs, appetizers, first courses, vegetarian food, red meat and medium and long seasoned cheeses.

Let’s imagine some gnocchetti with meat sauce, a pork steak in red wine and a nice seasoned pecorino di grotta.

  15. Martyn Longly (verified owner)

    Excellent wine. I always feel better when a delivery is made. It’s just a shame that the stupidity of 51% in June 2016 have made delivery so difficult. Hopefully this will no ,longer be a problem once the UK warehouse is up and running.

  16. Kevin Rowan (verified owner)

    Excellent quality red wine. The wine box tastes slightly sweeter than the Sottovento, which we prefer. Such a shame that Brexit means we had to wait almost 2 months for delivery.

  17. Lorna Williams (verified owner)

    Wonderful wine. Terrific value for money. Trouble-free ordering and shipping. Prompt service.
