Fresh red-fruit aromas are in abundance on the nose, with field strawberry, morello cherries, and tart red apple, along with appealing notes of dried rosemary, basil, and just a hint of balsamic. It's expressive and fresh.
The medium-bodied palate of this Montepulciano showcases more of the bright red-fruit notes we found on the nose, with ripe cherries, strawberries and raspberries. The tannins are fine-grained and well integrated, and the acidity lends freshness and energy to the dry finish.
Montepuciano d'Abruzzo pairs beautifully with hearty, savoury foods, so pair this example with a meat lover's pizza or burgers.
Fresh B.C. cherries out of the back of a truck, all eaten before you can get them home!
A sweet, almost caramel-like aroma reminiscent of your favourite juicy, red berry.
Tangy or sweet, juicy or tart: more sophisticated than a strawberry, but just as lush.
When was the last time you raked up all the leaves in your yard and jumped in the pile?
Your windowsill herb garden gives off a lovely herbal smell every time you walk by.

We featured Giuliana Vicini's bright, expressive Rosato last summer, so when we were offered a chance to debut the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo from their new Bio range as a WineCollective exclusive, it was met with an enthusiastic "Yes please!" from our team! Winemaker Chiara Ciavolich named the winery in honour of her aunt, Giuliana, who gifted the vineyard's land to her. Giuliana had wanted to be a winemaker, but back in those days, it was sadly not an option for women. The only "catch" to the bequeathal was that the land be used to make wines without pretension, at prices that were accessible to most people. Thus could the legacy of the Vicini name be carried into the future, and properly pay tribute to the women who were so central to the family's success.
This organically-farmed Montepulciano captures everything we love about this indigenous grape variety. Serve it at about 18 C and enjoy over the next 2-3 years.
