More about this wine from Abruzzo, Italy
Abruzzo is a delicious wine region just East of Rome nestled along the Adriatic sea. The ocean is embedded in all things Abruzzo from the wine to the cuisine to just a lazy summer day on the beach. And Italians do the beach extremely well. This bottle is made of 100% Montepulciano grapes that are handpicked from one vineyard in the town of Chieti, which is located less than half a mile from the spiaggia, Italian for beach!

This juice is an elegant purple and violet color screaming for your lips with waves of ripe plum and dark raspberries flowing as you pour the vino into a glass. The sipping is a continuation of that black fruit but darker chocolate notes and a hint of spice join the party. This is smooth and easy drinking and one of the better values out of Italy right now.



How to drink it

Reminiscing. This bottle and the new single Harmony Hall by Vampire Weekend are both like a greeting from an old friend.

A big heavy plate loaded up with Abruzzo tomatoes, spices, spicy pepper, clams, and mussels steaming will make your apartment spell like an Italian beach vacation
