Montepulciano originates from Central Italy and produces large, almost seedless grape berries of an amazing dark colour.
Relatively low acidity (especially for an Italian varietal) and mild sweet tannins ideally suited to the temperate Nelson climate.
Our Montepulciano 2015 is densely coloured and rich, with ripe flavours of dark berries and spice, finely integrated French oak and a firm backbone of tannin.
Try it with a wood-fired pizza or pappardelle-pasta with hearty wild boar ragu – buonissimo.
Ideal serving temperature: 18°C
