A bit of a twist on this Italian classic everyday favourite – this has a really soft, broad and clove spice kick, which blends very well with the juicy black fruit flavours. Really supple and easy drinking.”

Origin

Select vineyards located near the inland town of Loreto Aprutino, near Pescara, on the Adriatic Coast.

Grape Variety

100% Montepulciano.

Following a careful selection of younger vine grapes in mid October, a traditional temperature controlled fermentation followed in stainless steel - at slightly lower than normal red winemaking temperatures, in order to capture the fruity vitality of this grape. The wine was aged for six months in used French oak barrels to soften the tannins.

Alcohol Percentage

13%

Cellar Potential

Drink now and over the next 18 months.

Producer

Talamonti was founded in 2001 by the Di Tonno family in one of the most unspoiled parts of Abruzzo. Their vineyards have expanded to 32 hectares in production and in addition to the native Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and Trebbiano d’Abruzzo other varietals have been planted. Pecorino, for example, was planted in 2004 as part of an estate experiment to study the ability of other varieties to adapt and express themselves.

Food Match

Any good meaty, oregano and tomato based sauce used in a classic Lasagne, served with a rocket, spinach and watercress salad.

    Recently tried the 2014. An interesting and unusual wine. Very much has flavours of Italy with its dark ripe cherries and a distinct taste of amaretto biscuits. Enjoyable but difficult to pair with food.
