Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC "Ducaminimo" is a great structured red wine. The grapes, 100% Montepulciano, are carefully selected and harvested in mid October. Then, only the free-run must gets pressed and winemaking takes place at a controlled temperature. Bottle refinement lasts at least 6 months.
Characteristics of this red wine
It displays a deep garnet red colour and conveys a black fruit jam bouquet which merges fade flower scent with pepper and cardamom notes, then ends with a delicate fragrance of licorice and coffee. On the palate it’s light, elegant, but also strong and majestic, with a great structure. Tannic, velvet and persistent in taste. Spicy and fruity flavours return in the end.
Recommended pairings while tasting this wine from Cascina del Colle winery
It should be served in a wide crystal glass at a temperature of 18-20°C. We suggest to open the bottle one or two hours before serving, in order to enhance its characteristics. It’s perfect to be paired with red meat, roast and braised beef.
