Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC 2012
A very rare wine that Francesco Valentini produce only in exceptional vintages. He rigorously selects the best bunches from hundreds of acres of vines. Vines are trained in the traditional pergola method. Fermentation takes place using ambient yeasts. Maceration can be up to 45 days. Large, old Slavonian oak “botti” are used for elevage.
Aged 12 months in oak and chestnut barrels; 48 months in bottle. Wine is released after three years.
Very deep in colour, it has the fragrance, the powerful and the aging potential of the greatest red wines of the world.
