An authentic Montepulciano

Montepulciano is a beautiful vine that has found in Abruzzo an ideal territory to develop at best all its organoleptic characteristics; here masterfully interpreted by Illuminati, historic Teramano winery. Its maturation cycle is very long, in fact it is harvested around the first decade of October, and after a careful selection the must undergoes a long maceration in contact with the skins, and then refines for a minimum of 10 months in Slavonian oak barrels and, finally, a further 3-4 months in the bottle, before being put on the market. The result? How to describe it... We tasted it and below we bring to you our tasting notes ... Judge for yourself!

Very intense ruby red with purple reflections. The nose releases sweet aromas of ripe cherry and red fruit jam, hand in hand with sensations of undergrowth, wet earth and dry leaves, along with hints of sweet spices such as cloves, cinnamon and vanilla. The taste is full, soft and round, perfectly balanced between structure and sweetness, with a smooth but present tannin texture that accompanies a final of spicy returns of great finesse, for a result that touches the aromaticity.

It goes well with roasts, braised meats, red meats, game and noble poultry or semi-mature cheeses, but it reaches perfection reaches with goat and lamb.

The Cellar

Le colline teramane devono molto a Illuminati e, in particolare, a Dino Illuminati, considerato tra i più grandi esponenti del rinascimento enologico abruzzese, fermo sostenitore della valorizzazione della sua terra. Merito di quest’azienda è stato quello di ricalcare lo stile tradizionale e classico dei vini abruzzesi svecchiandone però l’immagine, approcciando quindi rese basse e selezione accurata delle uve durante la vendemmia e facendo proprio il concetto di Cru. Molto ha fatto anche la posizione strategica, se si pensa che Controguerra gode di condizioni pedoclimatiche di p...

Review by D
Holiday romance?
This wine was served in a Roma trattoria as their house red, and was far superior to a more expensive restaurant wine in the U.K. It was excellent as an accompaniment to rich meat dishes. I did not catch the year but I’m hoping to buy bottles in the U.K.
