Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is an Italian red wine made from the Montepulciano wine grape in the Abruzzo region of east-central Italy. Under Italian wine law, DOCG (Denomination of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin) is the highest designation of quality among Italian wines.
Montepulciano D’Abruzzo reds fall into two categories. A medium to heavy-bodied, ready to drink wine or a wine loaded with fruit and spice supported by great austere tannins. The Ricci Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOCG 2012 is the latter, expressing classic Abruzzo fruit flavors of cherry and briary blackberry, subtle smoky oak with a hint of licorice.
Vinified using natural indigenous yeasts, unclarified and unfiltered.
A wine with gorgeous mouthfeel, beautiful balance, drinking well now but will develop and blossom into an exceptional memorable wine in years to come.
This natural wine is made using organic processes and has much less sulfur than in organic wines. It is also suitable for vegan as it does not come in contact with any animal products or compost.
