This is Riserva-level and what happens when Montepulciano steps it up a few notches.
The combination of premium fruit, barrel aging and some extra time in the cellar result in a totally different animal compared to the normal table wine we know of as Montepulciano D'Abruzzo.

The already low acidity is softened even further. The result is a beautiful, balanced, super-smooth medium bodied wine with well integrated tannins. Pair with a chunk of grilled red meat.
