Notes: Montepulciano is a grape that can produce wines in a wide range of styles and quality. Yields are reduced by dropping fruit, in order to produce riper, more concentrated and balanced fruit. The grapes are picked with no hint of over-ripeness and are vinified with the goal of maintaining freshness and a juicy, user-friendly style.
