The Savini estate was established over 70 years ago in 1949 by Vincenzo Savini. It was then passed on to his son, Giuseppe and then his grandchildren: Giovanni, Michele, Simone, and Sigismondo. Over the span of these generations, Savini has grown to include over 600 hectares of land. Of these, 80 hectares were carefully selected as vineyard sites. The remainder is divided up between olive groves, grains, and vegetables.
Family owned and committed to sustainability, the Savini's are dedicated to understanding the land and its strengths; planting only what they know will thrive there, so as to avoid the unnecessary use of chemicals. The region of Abruzzo itself has a history of winemaking that dates back to the 6th century B.C. (perhaps even as far back as the 4th century)! Situated between the Adriatic Sea and the Apennine mountain range, this region is perfectly suited to create outstanding wines. Now grab a glass and enjoy Montepulciano d'Abruzzo: one of Italy's most famous wines! Serve at 16 - 18 degrees Celsius. Drink now or up to 2 years.
Stunning and slightly transparent pale garnet core that disperses out to a slightly watery garnet rim.
A few swirls in the glass and this wine is fruity and enticing. We are immediately greeted by dark fruits like ripe cherries, currants, wild berries, and blackberries. Almost a potpourri element of violets and dried spices like oregano or clove intermingle with a slight hint of leather.
This wine whisked us away, as if we had been transported to a breathtaking villa in the Italian countryside overlooking a vineyard, while we soaked up some sunshine. The medium body accompanies exacting tannins and a generous acidity. Overflowing with red and black fruits like dried blackberry, blackcurrant, and jammy cherries. Spice undertones of liquorice root and clove come together with a hint of leather and fig in the drawn-out finish.
Italians love to keep it simple, so we recommend following suit with a grilled meat like chicken and roasted potatoes with fresh olive oil, rosemary, thyme, and oregano. Saluti!
