Abruzzo’s Montepulciano wines differ widely according to production’s location and considered the vast influence of the Apennines mountain range. Fontefico’s rendition reflects seaside Vasto microclimate and is more filled with subtle earthy components lifted by some dark licorice and toasted coffee at the back end of the palate, providing “salted” freshness and with the alcohol completely integrated in the wine structure.
We suggest this wine to the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo lovers, who want to explore its lighter side. This is a thirst quencher fruit forward wine raised in stainless steel tanks with low intervention in the cellar and unfiltered. It is hand harvested and fermented with indigenous yiest only. In the cellar, we just wait for the wine to be ready to express itself. It just contains lots of love. And the juice of an authentic Montepulciano grape.
