Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC “Cocca di Casa” 2017

(14,5% AbV). The Montepulciano D’Abruzzo originates from a mix of vineyards named Vigne del Pozzo: three contiguous and complementary soils with different characteristics to get the best combination of fruit, spices and acidity. Fermented in tank, the 24 month long ageing process includes both stainless steel vats (70%) and used wooden vessels (30%) plus 6 months in the bottle. Slight resinous notes followed by small flowers and red fruits, such as cherry and blackberry, which fill the nostrils of sweet and delicate sensations. In the mouth, the attack is soft but it early reveals high and pleasant freshness. In addition to the ripe fruit, this wine ends with spices like black pepper spice, liquorice and roasted coffee. Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is Altieri’s privileged grape, the one they cuddle more. This wine is their “Cocca di Casa”, their “beloved little girl”. What a perfect organic everyday wine! 9.582 bottles produced.
