Tasting Notes: A soft, perfectly poised red - with ripe fruit characters. A medium-bodied, warm, softly spicy red with aromas of plum and juicy fresh cherries. The palate is fresh and bright displaying light red fruit and redcurrant flavours, herbal notes and more red cherry fruit on the finish.

Producer Details: Set up in 2003, Adria Vini is a winemaking venture jointly owned by Boutinot and Araldica Vini Piemontesi, the leading co-operative in Piemonte. All areas of production, from grape selection through to vinification, maturation, blending and bottling are meticulously overseen by Araldica's Claudio Manera and Lella Burdese. Working closely with growers and cooperatives, their aim is to produce a range of authentic, well-priced wines from local grape varieties. The mainstay of white wine production is Pinot Grigio, sourced from the Pavia region south of Milan, Friuli and the Veneto, with the addition of Prosecco, and Grillo and Catarratto wines from Sicily.
The reds come from mature, low yielding vineyards in Sicily, Puglia and Abruzzo, the source of some of Europe's most undervalued and characterful wines. Their most recent project has brought Cannonau and Vermentino from Sardinia to the portfolio.

In The Vineyard: Produced from selected parcels of Montepulciano grapes, from low yielding 30 to 50 year old vines in the Chieti province of Abruzzo. The warm and dry climate produces a healthy crop of excellent quality grapes, hand harvested in mid September.

In The Winery: Fermentation took place in small batches between 28 and 30C using natural yeasts. The skins were left in contact with the fermenting wine for 10 days. After malolactic fermentation the wine was transferred to Adria’s cellars and briefly matured in large old oak casks.
