A tasting of a rosé wine from the DOC region for Montepulciano d’Abruzzo which covers a vast expanse of land in the Abruzzo region between the Apennines foothills down to a few miles inland from the Adriatic coast.
The wine was drunk with a French dish called duxelles with chicken. A good match. The colour is cherry red typical of rose wine from Montepulciano grapes. Intense and full-bodied with a bouquet red berries, strawberries, cherries and almonds wrapped by a slight note of spice. Fresh taste but rich as well. Harmonious and elegant, a surprising wine. You could also drink with seafood dishes maybe with seabass just simply grilled with butter.
This region is one of Italy’s most mountainous with more than 65% of all Abruzzo being considered mountainous terrain with the Apennines peaks reaching up to 9000 feet above sea level. The hillside vineyards planted on calcareous clay benefit from warm and significant sun exposure that is ventilated by dry breezes coming off the Adriatic Sea
