Tasting notes of the red wine Mo Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva 2014
Mo Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva 2014
It has a lively ruby red color with purplish nuances. The nose is intense, recalling notes of cherry and fruity notes of blackberries, currants and black cherry embellished with delicate spicy hints of black pepper and juniper berries. The palate is warm and enveloping, with a silky tannic texture, and a good persistence in the mouth.
Refines for 24 months in oak barrels, 6 months in the bottle
Grapes: 100% Montepulciano
The Tollo winery was born in 1960, when the Abruzzi countryside was once again depopulated and many Italians left the country in search of a better future. Some winegrowers, with generations of experience, chose instead to stay in the vineyards, giving life to what is now the Cantina Tollo. Protagonist in the 1960s and 1970s of the fermenting climate of the Abruzzo region, the winery played an active role in the sector, helping to bring about a radical change in the regional wine-growing geography.
