Gran Sasso La Bella Addormentata Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC

2015

In a Nutshell

Soft and easy going pizza red.

Tasting Notes

Made in an early-drinking style, this wine is ruby red with violet highlights. Cherry, sour cherry and blackberry aromas are supported with an intense balsamic note. The palate is full bodied with good, supple tannins supporting the juicy fruit. 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 - all others were destemmed before fermentation and skin contact that lasted for 15 days. Continuous racking and punch-downs took place in stainless steel and concrete tanks at a controlled temperature of 28°C. Malolactic fermentation took place in 80% stainless steel tanks and 20% oak barrels.
