Hand Crafted by Geoff Hardy Montepulciano 2017

This is fragrant, seducing with aromas of black cherry and plum. More cherries and plum on the palate along with aniseed and a hint of smokiness. One of the better Montes going around.

Allow us to prattle on a little more about this...

Montepulciano is an Italian grape grown widely in the Abrzzo region where it is known as Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. It’s also grown in other regions including Apulia and Umbria. Not the same thing as Vino Nobile de Montepulciano which is actually mostly Sangiovese. Confused? Snap!

It’s a popular grape in Italy, second only to Sangiovese in terms of plantings and over 40 DOC and DOCG areas allowed to plant it. Generally is produces medium bodied wines with a good mix of sweet and savoury characters. It is also capable of producing exceptional wines too. It generally offers plenty of acid and tannin so goes really well with food starting with b. We’re thinking burgers, bolognese and brisket but probably not bananas.
