Market Price
To show you the value you're getting as an Angel...

Every month, we benchmark a selection of our wines against up to three comparable wines on the market. The Market Price is based on the price of those wines.

What do we mean by benchmark? We order the wines in and taste them blind against our own, or we use our market knowledge (over 30 years between us) to set an industry standard Market Price.

If you buy one of our wines and disagree with the Market Price, or it's not your cup of tea, we'll give you your money back.

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.
