If you’ve ever had a Montepulciano d’Abruzzo before, it was probably mass-produced. Whether your first impression was good or bad, the Rapino Montepulciano d’Abruzzo will re-define it. Hand-harvesting and hand-selection of only the finest Montepulciano grapes and aged in cement vats. This is an ancient practice that produces unforgettable drops of greatness. While it’s yummy to drink fresh, you can also age the wine a few years in your cellar. Although, once you’ve tasted one of these, they won’t be safe in your cellar for long! Soft but strong full body with bright red fruits and spices. The finish has earthy tones of tar, ash, and espresso. The savory finish satisfies the soul. You can’t go wrong when pairing this wine, so don’t even think about it. Just pop the cork. 6,000 bottles annual production.
