Scarpone Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2018. For 4 generations, Lorenzo Scarpone’s family have been grape growers in Colline Terramane, recognized as the finest terroir in Abruzzo for growing the native Montepulciano grape. From his own 5 acre vineyard comes this bright and lively young charmer. Fermented in stainless steel and bottle-aged for 1 year in bottle, it has deep plummy flavors and soft tannins for a long smooth finish. Delicious with charcuterie and porchetta, it is the ideal accompaniment to all tomato-sauced pizzas and pastas.
