Niro Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Niro Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 750ml    
Sku: 1751588*

Born in the Abruzzo, Niro represents the ancient winemaking traditions of a region where vines date back to the Roman Empire. Nestled between the Adriatic Sea to the east and the Apennines Mountains to the west, the areas of Vasto and Crecchio offer the perfect climate for highlighting all the exceptional characteristics of the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grape.

Tasting notes
Color - Intense ruby red with violet and purple nuances Bouquet - Red fruit, mulberry and sour cherry preserve aromas with notes of vanilla, cocoa, leather, licorice and black pepper. Taste - Rich and full-bodied on the palate, with long lingering taste and ripe, balanced tannins

Wine maker notes
When crafting Niro, only the best fruit is selected and vinified following traditional techniques forgotten by modern technology. Niro undergoes a long maceration on the skins to extract all the richness of the Montepulciano grape. The resulting wine is intense and deep in color, lending the wine its name - NIRO - which in many Italian dialects means BLACK.

Technical notes
100% Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

Food pairing
Perfect accompaniment for meats such as roasted lamb, pappardelle with boar, and beef tenderloin. Also delicious with aged cheeses such as 5-8 year old Pecorino from Abruzzo.
