Sabatino di Properzio’s Montepulciano is as stylish as his labels. While this may sound like a contradiction in terms for a grape more often associated with rough-and-ready country wine, Sabatino has set out to prove otherwise, using low yields, old vines and increasingly organic viticulture to wring new depths from the DOC.
This Classica is an award winning red wine from the Abruzzo wine region of Italy. This red wine upholds Fattoria La Valentina’s belief that their wines should faithfully represent the vines from which they originated. The style combines tradition with modernity with an easy approach and inherent complexity. It sees little oak, and is an intense, civilised representation of the grape’s myriad fruit and spice flavours.
