Stella, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2016, Italy
Tasting Note: A bright, red-fruit-oriented Montepulciano d’Abruzzo that would pair well with many a midweek meal.
Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of red cherry, strawberry and red currant with a hint of hibiscus on the finish.
The dry, medium-bodied wine has fresh red-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and medium tannin.
The wine is straightforward and good in its dimension.
Bottle Note: Pack your bags and get ready for an adventure. Inspired by an adventurous, confident and vivacious soul, Stella Wines will take you through Italy unlocking its tastes, sights and sounds. Enjoy this wine as you embark on your own new experiences and discoveries. Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grapes, grown near the Adriatic Coast. Dry, yet mellow, with smooth tannins and delicious aromas of berries and herbs. A complement to a date night or casual evening enjoyed with Italian cheeses, pizza or red meats.
