Gran Sasso La Bella Addormentata Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC

2016

In a Nutshell

Soft and easy going pizza red.

Tasting Notes

Made for early drinking, this wine is packed with juicy fruit characters – cherry, sour cherry and blackberry with an intense balsamic note lingering at the finish. The palate is full bodied with good, supple tannins. This wine is well-balanced with good structure and a long finish.

Production Notes

The grapes were handpicked. On arrival at the winery, only 10% of grapes were put in fermentation tanks with their stems – the remaining fruit was destemmed. Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel and concrete tanks at a temperature of 28°C and lasted for 15 days. Continuous racking and punch-downs were performed to optimise extraction of flavours from the skins. Malolactic fermentation took place in 80% stainless steel tanks and 20% oak barrels, which softened the acidity and added complexity to the final wine.
