2012 Praesidium Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC
The Praesidium Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is a complex wine with the potential of long aging. Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel barrels and maceration is carried out for about 12 days, then the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo spends approximately 24 months in Slavonian and French oak barrels. It is then refined in the bottle for 6 months. This wine is not filtered or pasteurized, it only undergoes natural decantation. Sulphites are added in considerably lower amounts than the maximum allowed for organic certification.
The Riserva pairs very well with lamb, goat, pecorino cheese, game and with all the plates of the culinary tradition of the inland of Abruzzo.
