Wine Club Montepulciano

Overview

Usually, in wine industry lingo, “the selection” indicates choosing the best barrels or tanks for a particular wine during bottling time.  In this case, our extreme selectiveness was with the grapes! The vines had their crop thinned 3 times throughout the almost 6 month growing season, and harvested grapes were machine sorted at the winery before we were satisfied.  I guess we take Montepulciano a bit seriously around here!  This terroir driven wine is highly perfumed with complex ripe aromatics of plum, earth, dried cherries, with just a kiss of toasty oak.  This is a medium bodied wine with refreshing acidity and soft, lush tannins. We recommend pairing this wine with bbq, tex-mex, classic red sauce pasta dishes, and grilled poultry. Only 65 cases were produced after this very selective effort.
