Italo Pietrantonj Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2015, Abruzzo, Italy

Abruzzo, Italy


Does this label remind anyone else of 'The Godfather'? With records dating back to 1791, the house of Italo Pietrantonj is as old as it gets for Abruzzo wineries. The winery is now run by Roberta and Alice, whose great- great-great grandfather Nicola was the first certified winemaker in the Abruzzo region. Allow this wine to breathe and aromas of oregano, plum, and soft leather are sure to entice you. On the palate seductive flavors of cherry, vanilla, and boysenberry give way to soft tannins that round it all out. Make this wine an offer it can't refuse and pair it with roast pork shoulder, aged cheddar, beef enchiladas, or mashed parsnips.
