Il Faggio - Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2016Ripe Tannins
A deep ruby red in colour, with lifted perfumes of dark fruits, plums and cherries and a hint of mocha.
This wine has soft, ripe tannins and a delicious chocolate-cherry finish.
2016 was a challenging vintage in Abruzzo. The severe frost in April damaged some of the vineyards. Even the summer days were interrupted by periods of grey skies and misty rains, which persisted into harvest. Yields were generally lower, and wines showed slightly less body and lower alcohol.
