Torre dei Beati 'Mazzamurello' Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2013

$99.50 per bottle (750ml)

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC

100% Montepulciano from Torre dei Beati’s oldest plantings, the site first planted by Adrianna’s father in 1972. The vineyard is traditionally tended, employing the pergola Abruzzese trellising method. The soils are characterised by clay and limestone, and the viticulture is strictly organic. Grapes are picked over an average of 3 passes to ensure optimal ripeness and berry health before fermentation in steel vats, with total maceration taking about 30 days. The difference between this and the ‘Cocciapazza’ is that it is raised in 100% new French barriques and the lees are stirred regularly, endowing it with aromatic depth and supple power. R&R
