Farnese Farneto Valley Red Italian Wine, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, 1999

From the Montepulciano grapes of the sunny hills of Ortona the district's noble families obtained since the thirteenth century a prestigious red wine which they offered to their guests during their sumptuous banquets. Today the skilfull winemaking process and the short aging in oak barrels make it superlative. Ruby in color with a dry harmonic taste and a vinous and intense bouquet this wine is the authentic expression of its peculiar origin.
