Cantina Gabriele Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2016
The wine has a deep ruby color that shimmers with purple. It is a full-bodied wine with fine, silky tannin, long aftertaste and a black cherry aroma. It goes well with barbecue, grilled and roast meat, lamb or cheese.
In the midst of the XIXth century in Pantelleria - a little island in the south of Italy - Andrea I Pandolfo, great-grand father of the present owner Gabriele, began to produce wines based on the specie of Zibibbo grapes. In 1880, Andrea I sold the small vineyards in the island and bought 150 acres of virgin land in the north of Tunisia - precisely at Khanguet Gare, in the region of Cape Bon. There were planted and picked the first grapes then, in the early years of the XXth century, Andrea I and his son Giovanni began to produce quality wines in their family cellar. Such a good wine that from the port of Tunis departed full-loaded cargos to serve the best markets of France.
