About the wine

Riccardo's mind-bogglingly delicious Montepulciano was the runaway winner of our blind tasting vote
  • The juicy, indulgent Montepulciano from undiscovered Italian winemaker Riccardo Iacobone bagged the most votes at every single tasting.
  • With rich and intense blackberry flavours, a yummy chunk of chocolate and and a velvety smooth smoky lick, it’s no surprise that the voting box was overflowing with tokens.
  • Riccardo could hardly believe it when we gave him the good news - thanks to the power of your votes, he’s bagged a game-changing order for his business.

Serving advice
Serve at 16-18°C. Open/Decant 1 hour before serving

Food match
In Abruzzo we are famous for barbecues, and this wine is perfect with any grilled meat. Pecorino cheese is also great with it. On a vegetarian side, any grilled vegetables, especially zucchini, aubergines and bell peppers, are great companions to it, but creamy risotto is also delicious, as well as tasty legume/bean soups.

Allergy advice
Contains Sulphites. Always check the label.
